Remove temp files

HI,

 

I was copying a music file from my computer to my PlayBook via wifi and the transfer was interrupted.  Now I have a partial file listed in the Music app and I'd like to remove it.  I tried copying it again and I have two of them with the same name listed.  The "AIR Browser" app only shows the complete one, not the one that aborted.

 

Is there any way to remove it without wiping and/or reloading the PlayBook?  I tried rebooting and that didn't make a difference.

 

RIM: Shouldn't there be an automatic cleanup of temp files on reboot?  Why don't file transfers write directly to the destination directory?

 

Harry

Re: Remove temp files

You might try to connect your PlayBook to the PC, so you can obtain access to the PlayBook files.

 

In below article you can find various ways to connect to the PlayBook files

Re: Remove temp files

Connecting via USB shows the same set of directories as connecting via wifi/samba.
