Can't Delete Copy of System Drive Folders
Well, I did a really stupid thing. My system drive was failing so before it died I went into panic mode and made a complete copy of my C: - system drive on a data drive. This of course included the "Program Files", "Program Files x86" and "Windows" folders. Now that I've replaced my system drive I just can't delete these folders no matter what I've tried. My main account is an admin account and I've even tried logging in as the built-in Administrators account but no matter what I do I can't delete these folders. I've managed to delete some of the files in these folders but definately not all. It's only taking 300MB but on an SSD this is significant.
Does anyone have a suggestion?
