    Hi I took a second hard drive from a computer and installed in this computer
    as a second hard drive and then installed Vista on it. I switch between XP
    and Vista by choosing which hard drive I boot from in the BIOS.I did not
    bother formatting the drive I just installed Vista on it as I wanted to see
    what it was like and if it would work with my peripherals and programs. So
    far I have had not needed to buy new peripherals such as printer and scanner
    but the programs I use for my camcorder editing do not run under Vista so I
    am keeping both hard drives. The problem is is that there is a Documents and
    Settings folder that I cannot access or delete as it was left over from when
    the hard drive was in another computer. So how can I access this folder or
    delete it?
    Thanks Ron

    It's really a burden on our part once a problem occurs when deleting a folder, I was just so lucky to found the best tool that I could use to solve the problem right away. If you're experiencing the same problem, I suggest you try "Long Path Tool". This will help you, too. Especialy if you're like me, not so expert when it comes to computer troubleshooting.
