    I was cleaning up my second harddrive and deleted about 50 files..... I then
    saved the rest to my first harddrive and fdisk the second harddrive and
    split it up into 2 partitions..... however when I went into the recycle bin
    to permanantly remove the deleted files WIndows didn't want to remove these
    files I guess cause it couldn't find the right path..... it kept asking me
    where drive H was which was the old drive letter that these files were
    on..... so now what?

    Since you are using OE 5, I will assume you are using
    Windows 9x.

    Boot into DOS and delete the recycle bin by typing:

    deltree /y c:\recycled

    Change the path to 'recycled' as necessary.
    The recycle bin will be rebuilt when you boot back into

  3. Download and install Clean Disk Security. Now i know what you're thinking but
    i'm telling you it'll work. The freeware version will do.

    It's kind of stupid to dl a program to do what the other poster suggested,
    especially since it is not a recurring problem.
    However, if it was, then your suggestion might have some merit.
