How to delete old Windows files from an external drive?

Recommended Posts

HelgenX    9

For the love of god, this is always the problem I have with Windows 10. And no, I do not mean the Windows.old directory, I mean anything from Microsoft like Program Files, system32 ETC. I use the Take Ownership reg app and take ownership, deleted all the users except myself both as admin and user and set to full control, I did the inheritance, change owner ETC, I can never delete these damn files!


Is there some app that simplifies this, take ownership does NOTHING and changing the security settings is not doing anything, either.
