I'm running Windows Vista, which is installed on my primary drive.

I have a second hard drive installed, which used to host my Windows XP install, and I'm trying to delete the Documents folder, but I don't have permissions to do so.

Is there a way I can reset the permissions on all subfolders of my second drive?

You'll have to "take ownership", here's a tutorial:

Add "Take Ownership" to Explorer Right-Click Menu in Win 7 or Vista
