Hi there

I have a partition that used to have Win aboard. Now it's empty, save for the folder called "Documents and Settings".

Everytime I try to delete that, it says that the subfolder that used to be the user's is in use... or the disk is full.

I tried resetting the read-only attributes - no joy - and then I tried Safe Mode as Administrator, alos no joy...

Any ideas? Thanks!
