Hi,

This is kind of a vague question. Are you saying that you have files that you have uploaded to the internet from your computer and you want to delete the copy that is on your local machine? If this is the case then just back up the files or folders to an external drive or something and delete the local copy from your computer. To answer your second question about people accessing your local files there are ways but it takes either a hack/trojan/spyware etc. Unless you are running a server with ssh access, but that is another story.

depends on where you uploaded them. and the chance someone has already copied and saved it is real as well.
if its Facebook than yes or if it's something like Image Shack you would have needed to register in order to delete anything.
