If I watched a movie on the D: drive of my laptop will my computer automatically store it somewhere else after it has been played? Or is it just a one time deal once the movie is played and removed the computer does not recognize it anymore? Thanks.

If you mean does it save it to the drive? No, it doesn't but it'll buffer it for playback.

Yes that is what I meant. What do you mean by it will buffer for playback? It has been months since I watched it on there. When I go to media player I can't find it anywhere. How could I find it again? Where should I be looking? If you can't tell I don't want it anywhere on my computer if it is still there somewhere. I need someone that knows what they are doing to help me. Thanks for the help.

Most likely the buffering is done in the Windows temp folder and it doesn't save anything. Once you remove the media it's erased.

So what you are telling me that it is most likely gone and there are likely no traces of it left on my computer anywhere since when I search for it I can't find it anywhere. Right? Thanks again.

You can open your media player and go to settings. There you'll find what it uses for temp folder and you can look in there. It might also give you an option of purging it (if needed).
