Default Getting space back on HD. Ripping gone bad. Help.

sponsored links

A few months back I tried to rip something using smartripper and my computer froze in the middle of it. For some reason those vob files that were ripped (I have done searches for them and have come up with nothing) are somewhere on my HD taking up lots of space and I can't seem to find out how to get my space back. Has anyone run into this and if so do you know what I can delete to get this space back. I am thinking that this shouldn't be so hard to find. Thanks for the help.

Run a scandisk on your hard drive.
There might be an error reporting free space after your computer froze.

I have run a few scandisks since to no avail. I am just perplexed as to how something could be taking up 30% of my system's space, and I can't find what it is.
