Deleted files generated with matlab keep occupying space in the hard drive and I can't locate them

9 views (last 30 days)
Dear all,
I have a tricky question regarding deleting files using matlab.
Let me explain.
I created a program that generates several files that totalize 15GB. Once my simulation is finished I used the matlab window "Current Folder" to select the generated files and than I deleted them. I was expecting to recover the 15GB, however I just recovered 5GB.
I would like now to know where are the remaining 10GB and how can I recover it.
Is there any temporary directory where matlab keeps the deleted files?
Thanks in advance,

Is your recycling preference set to delete or to move to the Recycle Bin / Trash / etc.? See the recycle function for more information.
