I have discovered that MSN has been saving a record of discussions in a folder "my received files" which I presume is a default setting. This must be taking up disk space and it would be helpful if anyone could advise as to how to delete these permanently.

My apologies if this post is in the wrong section!

I think once you've changed the setting in MSN Messenger to NOT save conversations, you can just delete the folder. In MSN 7.5, go to Tools, Options, Messages. The checkbox is toward the bottom half of that screen.

Thanks for the reply and advice. Will that permanently delete the record and make it unrecoverable?
