File Question
Read 4091 times

On page 3 or 4 back, I downloaded a tcw drawing about Grinderr Sketch.  After looking at it I deleted it but today I went to TC16.1 to open a drawing from TC in history, and there was Grinder Sketch which the cursor said was a File Folder.  What does that mean? Tried to delete it from history with no action.  How do I get rid of it or even find it?  Thanks

On the left-hand side of the "Open" dialog, under "History," right click on the file and select "Delete from History."

Henry, I did that 3-4 times and  I hold cursor on name and it says it is a file folder.  I looked most all over my computer for a file named File Foldere.  No luck.  Ray

Sorry, Ray; that was the only thing I could think of :-(

Ray,

You could also try using the Windows search tool.

Tried that Don.  No luck.  Here is the sequence:  Open TC - Click Open - In History column are some drawings AND grindersketch.....Tried to delete from histrory-No Luck....rightclick on grindersketch and it says:  grindersketch
           Folder:
           Modified: 24:02:1882  07:11
           Size: 4095MB
That is everything I know.  Ray     PS:Next I guess I will try Clear History and reload my drawings in there

Just a thought, have you tried shutting the computer completely OFF and restarting. That helps me get rid of stubborn folder from my desktop.

You could hunt down the History folder in Application Data and delete the "History.txt" file or open it and see what's wrong; it's readable.

This is where mine is:
C:\Users\John R\AppData\Roaming\IMSIDesign\TurboCAD\16\Professional\History

Didnot see App Data so I just went into TC16 and cleared out the History completely and byebye grindersketch.  Reloaded other drawings in history.  Now it is ok but still do not know what the problem was. And nows I don't know where App Data\Roaming is......I will work on that in the am.  Ray

re: ...I don't know where App Data\Roaming is......I will work on that in the am.

See if either of these help. These locations are probably set as "Hidden", but that can be changed in Windows Explorer under "Tools / Folder Options — View page".

Vista64 — C:\Users\your user name\AppData\Roaming\IMSIDesign\TurboCAD\16\Professional\History
XP — C:\Documents and Settings\your user name\Application Data\IMSIDesign\TurboCAD\16\Professional\History

Thank you Henry, Don and John for your inputs on this topic.  I did what John said and deleted that part of the History File.  You are all appreciated.  Ray
