    So I was copying a movie from pc to gtv using file expert. I don't remember exact details( a couple weeks ago), but it got stopped or cut off mid-transfer and now I get messages low on space and I can see this file it is listed as 0 bytes, but it is corrupt and can not be deleted using file expert or media player. It's location is /mnt/sdcard/download . I tried renaming cut and paste delete with every option I could find, but I can't get rid of it. Any suggestions ?

    I figured the factory reset would do it, but hated to go that route.

    I don't know about the mount option (i'm not a linux guy) I tried ftp, that didn't work.

    Just to finish this up, I did the factory reset and it did clear the corrupt file. Though I do have to say after doing this everything about the tv seams slower now menu, opening apps even startup.

    Is your available space back to what it was when you first got the TV?

    Also, maybe this is a good time to try the Rooted Kernel.

    Yea space is fine.
    I plan on rooting at some point, I'm just an alpha test kinda guy and i'm 75% satisfied as it is now. So i'll wait till it's progressed a bit and i'm in the mood to spend a day playing with it.
