    Blank Library


    Hey there all

    I have a issue with my library list.

    Somehow I have created a library that no longer exists and I cant for the life of me get rid of it.

    I have tried the right click remove library option but still stays there and I think it is causing some major issues with my explorer.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Cheers

    Did you select REMOVE or DELETE?

    Disconnect your network if you are on one then delete

    try renaming the library, close the window, come back to the library and try to delete it.

    I had this happen, the Library vanished! I just re-created it, and it stayed put the second time. No idea why it went away the first time.
