If I choose the External Media Card when creating a database and then delete such database then the files are deleted from the device as expected.

However, if I choose the Internal Storage option when creating a database and then delete such database then the files are NOT deleted from the device.  The DVD Profiler app no longer shows the database listed as an option but the files are still available, and have not been deleted, when connecting the device to a PC and viewing the internal storage.

See this post for additional file location info:

Tested and appears to be working properly. Note that the PC's view of internal files may not always be synced up to the moment. You can check the Settings->Storage->Device memory->Available space to verify that the free space returns after the database is removed.

I'll test again with the latest build and report back.  This database had been created on 14 Aug and was deleted prior to connecting it to the computer.

I haven't been able to confirm or deny if this has been fixed.  It appears, at least with build 40, the database may now be placed in a different location.  Previously, when creating a new database and selecting Internal Storage the database was placed in the following location:

Computer/Nexus 5/Internal storage/Invelos/

However, when creating a new database and using the Internal Storage option with build 40 there is no Invelos folder that I can find under

Computer/Nexus 5/Internal storage/

nor is it located under the location used by the External Media Storage option:

/storage/sdcard0/Android/data/com.invelos.dvdprofiler/files/

So, I'm not sure where the files are now being placed when using the Internal Storage option.
