Can't see QVDs files in File Explorer

I'm new to using QVD files, why can't I see the QVD files when I navigate to the folder from the file explorer? 

And is there any absolute beginner guide to deleting QVD files if you can' t delete them directly from the file explorer?

Much of what i've read on deleting QVD files assumes a great amount of PC coding/scripting knowledge (like command line stuff).

Thanks

At first, you need to know where you store the QVDs. To store QVDs, you must setup a new folder connection and after that you can use the next line:

 

STORE TableName into [lib://ConnectionName/TableName.qvd];

 

In order for a QVD to store, your script must have been successfully loaded up and until the STORE command. You can find the QVD in the file explorer by navigating to the same folder as the ConnectionFolder. 

Hope it helps!
