Deleting items from your iTunes library does not remove them from the original location that you have stored them. If you want to remove a movie permanently from your iTunes library, you can do it with iFunbox and iTools. These two programs will allow you to delete movies and other media files completely off of your computer so that there is no way for anyone else to find them again even if they are looking through all of the files on your hard drive. Keep reading this article to learn how to delete movies from iTunes permanently.
1) Download and install iFunbox on your computer (make sure that it works with your particular operating system).
2) Download and install iTools on your computer (make sure that it works with your particular operating system). Both of these programs are available for free, so please make sure that you download the correct version for your operating system before continuing.
3) Locate the movie in iTunes and right click on it. Click “File Sharing” from the menu list that appears when you right click. 4) Choose “Delete File”. The movie will be deleted permanently from your computer after a few seconds. Please note that this type of file cannot be recovered even if you use iFunbox or other recovery software, but there is no way to prove that you did delete it unless someone else knows what happened to the file.
So, there you have it — two simple ways of permanently deleting files or folders that you don’t need any longer. Again, just be careful and make sure that you are deleting the right things and not something important by mistake! Also keep in mind that everything is stored on your computer’s hard drive so if you accidentally delete something then it can always be retrieved using some sort of recovery software. Just make sure to choose wisely before deleting anything…and always remember to backup often! Do you have any other suggestions or comments about how to permanently delete things from your computer?

Posted by: John | May 7, 2014 at 08:26 AM Permanent deletion isn’t a hard thing to accomplish. It’s as easy as deleting a file or removing a directory completely from your systems disk drive. But how can you accomplish this task if you’ve accidentally deleted something important from your Mac and wish that it would be deleted forever? Well, there are several ways in which you can achieve permanent removal of anything that you don’t want anymore. Let’s take a look!
Deleting an Item from Your Library
When you want to permanently delete a file or directory, the best place to start is with your computer’s library. In this system that is used in Mac OS X (and other operating systems as well), all of the files and directories that are stored on your hard drive are broken into several different locations depending on what kinds of content it contains. For example, if your file or folder has pictures, then it will be classified under one location while video will go under another location and music yet somewhere else. This means that if you looked at the directory structure for any given movie item then there could be numerous places where the video itself is located and most of these items might not even have anything to do with the movie you are looking for. Taking this concept into consideration, it should be pretty easy to see why a file that is no longer located in your library might still be there after you have deleted or moved it! Here are some ways that can help you find missing items and remove them from your hard drive once and for all…
This probably seems like a no-brainer because trash cans (and files) are temporary storage locations anyway. The problem with this method of removal is that most garbage collection routines don’t actually permanently delete anything from the disk until something else needs the space on the disk. This means that if you recently emptied out your trash then any files stored there could still be intact on your Mac’s hard drive. So if the file that you’re looking for is still located under this folder, then you might be able to retrieve it again if your system didn’t properly remove it from the trash can after deleting.
This method will work in nearly every situation because it requires two separate actions at once and most users wouldn’t even think about doing both tasks simultaneously. Here’s how to use this trick: Open up your computer by pressing command+alt+delete or just click on the apple menu while holding down the option key Select “Go” from the menu list and then select “Go To Folder” Type into the box.
To remove an item from Apple Music, press and hold the song. Select Remove. From the list of options, select either Delete or Delete Download to avoid deleting it on all devices that you use with Apple Music.
To hide a past purchase on iTunes, select Purchase from the sidebar and click Hide Purchases. This hides the purchases you will no longer be able to review in the My Purchased section of your account page.
When you delete songs from your iTunes library, they’ll be removed from any devices synced next time. If you remove them directly on your iOS device, they are gone forever. You can unhide them in the iTunes store by going to “iTunes Store>Music>Purchased” then searching for the missing song and clicking “Unhide Titles”
Here are five tips to help you maintain your iTunes Library:
-Download missing artwork for the missing songs.
-Remove any unwanted music by selecting all of it and pressing delete on your keyboard or click on Edit in your menu bar at the top and select Delete playlist. Repeat this until there is only music that you want to keep in the library.
-Add music from a computer to iTunes with CMD+O, this can be done very quickly by cutting and pasting files from one directory to another in Finder or File Explorer then dragging them into the box that appears when you click on Add Files in iTunes, alternatively use an external hard drive connected via USB if desired
-Fix nameless or mislabeled songs
Step 1: Open the Apple Music app on your Android smartphone or tablet. Step 2: Click on the Library button from the bottom bar. Step 3: Now click on Albums, Artists, Playlists, or Songs from the list. Any item you select should have a Delete option at its top right corner. Long press an item (album, artist, playlist, or song) and a pop-up menu will open to confirm that you want to remove it.
