Alright. There are two MAJOR components to the Amira networks.
Part 1: you have the .hx network file. This is a file contains a series of TCL command that allows Amira software to load a series of other assets(files) such as the label file, surface file. .hx file is also responsible for setting up nondata modules such as viewer modules, visualization modules, 3D modules etc etc. If you delete this file, the network will not load even though ALL your data is still there. (hence, a possibility of rescue via directly loading the data. NOT catastrophic data loss!)
Part 2: you have the -file folder. Eg. if you named your network "test.hx", you will have a folder called "test-file". What's contained within "test-file" are all the assets that is needed by the network. If you delete this folder, when the network loads, you will NOT have any data modules (shown in green). Data modules are always saved separately and loaded when the network is loaded and they reside in that folder. So be really careful what you do with contents in that folder.
In order to completely delete a network, make sure you delete both the .hx and the -file folder.
