My deleted clips keep coming back

Note: This article has done its job, and will be retiring soon. To prevent "Page not found" woes, we're removing links we know about. If you've created links to this page, please remove them, and together we'll keep the web connected.

If you delete a clip from Clip Organizer by using the Delete from Clip Organizer command, the clip is deleted only from the Clip Organizer database, not from your hard disk (or other location). To permanently remove the clip, use Microsoft Windows Explorer to search for, locate, and delete all instances of the clip.

Note: Clips can appear in search if they are part of the Office or online collections.
