Guys I have two hard drives and I installed windows Vista on the second hard drive to boot from it sometimes. I decided to delete windows vista on that second hd without formatting hard drive. So basically I deleted it manually. There is one problem left, when I try to empty recycle bin it tells me "can not remove a folder .... make sure disk is not full or write protected". How do I completely empty recycle bin so that I don't get that message.
