Formatting Second Drive

I am running vista on this drive and I have added a second drive for storage etc.. That drive has an old XP O/S on it and it wont allow me to right click on the drive and format it, access denied etc.. How can I completely wipe the drive so it is totally clear for storage. Thanks.

If you have Acronis True Image 11 and you run the clone disc option it should format the second drive at the same time. (I assume you want a back up?)

Can't you format it using Admin Tools> Computer management> Disk Management?
