I took my computer to be repaired. They gave me another computer with xp and a good c drive and installed my old 80 gig as the d drive. It used to be my c drive. They told me I can throw out anything I want in my D drive. I am afraid to do this because on some things, I get an "access denied" warning. There are a lot of pics and music I want to keep on this D drive. But there are files that used to operate as a c drive like a windows file, program file, winnT and documents and settings. I already threw some of this stuff away but tonight I was putting things I didn't want to keep in the trash and found Adobe and some microsoft installers and stuff that have the access denied warning when I tried to throw them in the trash. Scarey! Now I don't really know what to do. I don't even dare empty the trash bin and it is now full of stuff I don't want. When I told the guy at the repair shop about this he just said, "Throw it out!" I guess he was upset because I bothered him and because I need a second opinion. Can you help me with this? Everything still seems to be working ok on both drives. I'm just not sure about this task. Linda
