Hello, I have a question.

I have two hard drives in my system, my main drive that has windows installed on it and a second that has windows on it, but doubtful it will run windows.

Anyways, my question is, I use my second hard drive just for data and etc. and its running out of space, I was wondering if it is alright to delete the windows directory, its roughly 3.2gigs, and I could use that space.

So, can I? or is it going to cause problems? I tested a bit myself, deleted a few files and it gave me a warning saying important files were changed or moved or deleted, please insert your Windows XP Home cd blah blah blah. I restored the files from the recycling bin. Scared it was going to mess up my computer.

So how about it?

We'll need more information on this before we can help you.

Can you tell us why you have a windows folder on both drives? Did the second drive come from another computer, or is this from a second windows installation?
