    Hey guys, i know there have already been topics about that but i havent find anything useful yet. Well the thing is that i installed Vista on a seperate drive than XP and everything worked normally untill my 14 days vista trial expired. So now i want to remove vista, to be able to install a new version of it, but formatting the whole drive isnt an option since i have 250 gb of data there. I want to know if there is a chance to delete a vista folder manually from WindowsXP. Whenever i try to do that i get the write protection error even if i have a full ownership of that folder. I tried to delete it with CMD prompt, safe mode, different programs like Unlocker but i failed all the time. Is there any chance to get this done without formatting my drive?
