Cannot Delete Folders
Just a question I hope someone can answer.
I recently installed my OS on a new hard drive. I then reinstalled all my programs on the new hard drive. After reinstalling all my programs, I deleted the old windows directory/folder from the original hard drive and then all the programs that were still left on it. However, I have been unsuccessful at deleting the 'Adobe\Acrobat 10' and 'Adobe Reader 10.01' folders. I get the message "You need permission to perform this action." "You require permission from SYSTEM to make changes to this folder." I even went to the root directory (H) where these folders reside and set full permissions for Authenticated Users, SYSTEM, Administrators and Users. Still no joy. I continue to get the above messages when trying to delete these two folders. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

Personally, I think a better solution would be to take ownership of the hard drive's files, since I think that's a true solution to the situation here (plus I'm always leery of third party "just works!" software).
Alternatively: If you've everything you want off the hard drive, then simply format it.
