i built a new pc i put my hard/drive from my old pc into a usb external case.it,s a 250g/b western/dig.i kept all the data on it till i could transfer things that i wanted to keep on to the new sata h/d.(no problems upto now)my external is partitioned but i can,t delete the windows folder,has anyone any ideas on how i could delete this.it,s not a major problem as with the amount of storage i have i won,t miss the half a gig it,s using up.just like to know if it can be done.the windows folder on it is from my old pc.thanks.
thanks for replying i hav,nt got a clue how to go about this,also although i can move the things i have on this part of partition over to the other partition would doing as you suggest wipe the whole h/d as i have a lot of stuff on the other partition that i don,t want to touch.thanks again for your help on this.
Fdisk allows you to remove individual partitions - but probably better if you dont go that route.
Try using the deltree command in dos (I'm not sure if winXp supports this command anymore) or else download an alternative file manager and delete it using that, File Commander or something similar. click here for a list of possibles
been looking at what you suggest(File Commander)i am obviously missing something as when i done a search it was wanting me to pay.i am okay at putting a pc together but when it comes to things like this i freely admit to being a total dummy,if a programe can,t do it i usually back away from it.i really appreiciate your help on this.
