    Recycle Bin

    Just checking my list of torrents for a TV episode that I was certain I had downloaded. Couldn't find it in the list so I checked the recycle bin, in the knowledge that I had deleted a few torrents that I had watched already.
    I found the torrent I was looking for in the recycle bin. This came as a surprise as I am always careful before selecting 'delete torrent and data' to ensure the correct torrent is highlighted for the bin.

    The main issue was not the mislaid torrent, but the list of religious and alien related torrents also hiding in there, none of which I had even subscribed to? Has anyone else had weird unrelated stuff turn up in their recycle bin?

    My only recent software change was upgrading a legal copy of windows 8.1 to windows 10.

    I am certainly no expert, but sometimes when you download something, it has hidden attachments. When you delete the show, you also delete the hidden attachments. For example, I just downloaded a movie yesterday, and now have five episodes of something called Hunger Games in my menu. Once I watch and the delete that movie, all of the Hunger Games crap will vanish as well.

    The only change to my regular TV/Movie downloads recently has been some audio books and a documentary on Cadbury UK being shafted by Kraft.

    Nothing controversial or connected to the torrents I found in the recycle bin.

    Doesn't have to be connected in any way. I recently downloaded the original Beau Geste and it appeared in my TV library as "Rocky", although the content was Beau Geste.

    Fucking things are possessed.

    Sounds a bit cheesy?
