remove windows files from old HDD
I have an old hard drive that came out of one of my sisters old computers in an external enclosure. However it is almost full with programs and windows and I don't want to format it and risk the unreplacable data on the drive Is there any way to remove just windows and programs off the drive? I tried deleting them manually but it says I need administrator permission to do so.
thanks in advance. This has been quite an ordeal for me the last week
