Default What happens if I delete the BD data file?

Hey, what would happen if I delete the BD data file? And why is there an option to delete it? Why is it there in the first place?

Thanks in advance!

Blu-ray movies are distributed on BD-ROM, therefore you can't delete anything off them, they are Read Only.

If you are referring to a writeable BD, then try it... let us know what happens... some of us may need cheering up .

Are you talking about the BD data utility? I know that any BD live content is stored in that file. I would guess that if you delete the entire folder it would recreate one for any discs that need it.

i dont see why you would want to delete it. it prob doesnt take much space on hdd./console. id recommend leaving it there

Do you have anything listed in the folder? I've checked a few times and didn't see anything listed but haven't checked since the BD-Live update.

Better yet, I should've had a smart-ass answer and said something like...

Content, downloadables via BD-Live, settings, the memory of where you were in the movie/DVD, Blu-ray game settings/scores (i.e. Disney Cars Finder data), etc. You can delete it, and it will clear but the next time you watch a movie that requires some storage, the data will be recreated. I just leave mine alone and with as little as 20GB to as much as 80GB, there really is no need to worry.

Hmm. I could go very different ways with this. I could say...

"...I'm not at liberty to divulge that information."
To which you would most likely respond with a sarcastic smirk (i.e., ) and say something like..."Ooookaaayyy." Or I could say,

Quote:
We are the forum gang, instilling fear and sillyness to every thread we come across! Bwahaha!
To which you would probably answer with some sort of raucous laughter (i.e., ) and say, "Seriously?! " Or I could go with another answer, and the one I most likely would've chosen.

Ask someone else with CBC on their sig, I'm too lazy to answer.
