Removing files and data
If there are files or data that is present on the system, which cannot be removed by means of deleting or removing through the Add/Remove in the control panel then you can simply try formatting the hard disk.

If the partition contains the files to be removed, you can format it by right clicking the hard disk partition and pressing the 'Format' button.
