Hi gang, So I am running Windows Vista Home on my new Gateway laptop. A couple of weeks ago I had to do a restore and chose to backup the files at the same time. It created a folder on the hard drive called "backup". In this folder, is everything that was on my hard drive before the restore - including the Program Files, Users and Windows folders. I'm ready to delete this folder (as it's taking up about 20GB) but it won't delete. It has let me delete everything except those three folders and their contents. I've even been able to delete some of the sub-folders of Program Files, but not the folder it's self. I found an article that mentioned that I had to take "ownership" of the folders before I could delete them. I followed the instructions on how to do this, and I think I did that successfully. But I still can't delete them. The error message says it's just unable to delete the folders. Any ideas? Thanks.
