cricketc,
To the Recycle Bin, if you answered yes to the prompt.
They will be there until you clear them.
You can hold the shift key when deleting to remove the file(s) from the hard drive.
Let me know if you need more,
Ralph

Only the entry in the FAT (File Allocation Table) is going away. You can undelete this files from command line.

But!! All file creating or changing actions after deleting files can destroy the existing file informtions forever. That means, after deleting files from command line you can only undelete these files if you immediately notice it.

There are many tools. For instance undelete from DOS or Norton Utilities.
Before you use this tools with a Win95 you must unlock the HDD. See lock (or was it unlock) for more details.

I guess I deleted something I should not have. No where in windows is there a temp file, temp internet file, or cache. Where can all of the temp files be going?

cbo,
Since we are in the Windows95 Setup area, I assumed cricketc was using Win95 instead of Dos.

cricketc,
Normally, the temp files are deleted automatically when you exit Windows.
Are you having problems now because of the files you have deleted?
