This is my 3rd install of windows 7 now on various array of hard drives, I'm now onto a SSD.
However I need to clean up all the other files, I've managed to get rid of all the permission based files.
However I'm still left with various folders and files in my non-os hard drives.
My setup is.
C - OS-Windows7 - SSD D - DataDisk - HDD - Where all programs are installed and user profiles G - Games - HDD - Where all games are installed M - Media - HDD - Where all pictures, videos and media are stored T - Archive - HDD - Where downloads, backups and archivey type things are stored.
However inside my D, M, and T drives (previously had OS in them) i've got OS files that when I delete seem to cause weird errors.
The files in question are
$RECYCLE.BIN (assume its the bin? but i've got 1 of these folders in each HDD, with crap in it. Even though I've emptied my bin) .Trash-999 (from ubuntu live disk that i used to delete the old /windows/ folders but i cant delete this now coz it contains...more windows files with higher permissions) Config.Msi (no idea + lock icon) Documents and Settings (access denied) found.000 (fragment folder but I want it gone, and its in all the HDDs also) MSOCache (want is it? do i need it..and in each HDD?) System Volume Infomration ( do i need this in every HDD?) bootmgr, BOOTSECT.BAK, hiberfil.sys, win7.ld, HASJM, YBOJA, win7.ld ( i know these are boot files and page/hibernation files, but can I remove these as these are not the boot drive?)
some light shed on this will be lovely as my hdd's are riddled with duplicated files that are massive. for instance my pagefiles are 16GB each on all 5 HDDs.
