Moved Files continue to show up in explorer

I have been creating material instances and then moving them to a particular folder in the content browser. I noticed that when it came to commit that these files were still showing up in my explorer file system, but not in the content browser. What am I missing?

Have you fix up your redirectors? If not any time you move something right-click the folder and select fix up redirectors and it should remove the 1k’ish file (the redirector file) that remains after moving the file. You can also run that command on the entire root content folder and it should remove redirectors found in all subfolders.

Yeah I have run that. Not sure why its not working.

Well it seesm that as long as the files are not referenced anywhere I can delete them. Thanks for the answer.
