I am running Windows 7 Home Premium
Dell Inspiron N5110, Intel Core i5-2430 @ 2.4 Ghz; 4.00 GB RAM; 64 Bit.

The start of my problems, battery ran completely down- the beginning of a number of things. Initiated Dell Data Back Up, inadvertently backed up to C Drive which made a copy of my user profile. Other things happened, received help from this forum to clear things up. Once I was sure things were running smoothly, I copied the second profile to external drive, thought I deleted second profile on the C Drive (I didn't thoroughly delete it).

Had another problem, sought help on this forum. Problem solved; however, it has made me realize that the copy of my second profile to my external drive- or maybe not - is where all my computer activity is occurring.

I would like to completely delete one profile or the other (preferably the old one)- safely. One profile - the old one - would hopefully clear up 16 GB of space. If I delete correctly I am guessing. And how do I return the copied profile correctly running on the C Drive?

Mainly, I need to get the copied profile to quit running from the external drive. I am unable to shut the external drive down at all.
I have included snapshots. Thanks.
