    Is there anyway to delete old (finished) games? I have a folder I put them in, but can't delete it because it is not empty! Thanks in advance.

    Games can never be deleted, as SS explained, because they each have two players and are linked to both users. Give your folder a name like "Deleted Games", stuff'em in and forget about them.

    Thanks everyone. What do people's folders look like when they have 1000's of games? lol. Could RHP save server space by deleting really old games or is it just not worth the trouble?

    You can't delete old games, it's part of the history.

    My archive folder is filled with games, it looks like it's full... but there is still room for more.

    Make yourself a "trash folder" and move games there. Be sure to never look at them again!

    Now, they are deleted.

    P-

    If you once get around 250+ games open, you can put them in folders like "Dragon", "Najdorf", "Spanish" and stuff like that. If yo organize them by opening, you can easily play all the moves of one opening in a reasonably short time and then move on to the next opening. That speeds up stuff a lot. Then again it also makes games lots more boring. Oh and when you reach the endgame of course don't forget to move them to the "Endgames" folder. I believe Heng did it like that when he had around 1500 games.
