Hi folks,

A silly error of mine! I have put copies of a few applications onto my second hard drive in the vain hope of protecting them after a malfunction on my main hard drive. ( I have two x 80Gb and used copy/paste )
the second HDD is mainly for my pictures and word docs, not applications. ( The malfunction is described in my second post numbered 13 in "Explain How You Fixed It" )

My question is: Can I simply delete these applications, given that the originals are still on my main HDD?? I hope I can.

Tnx for all advise ...

Hi Fairwind,

You said that you just copied and pasted them there as a back up, if this is the case, and you didn't actually install the programs there, then it would be fine to just delete them.

Hi there 666philb,

Thanks for your reply. I will take the safe option and try your advise on one of the less favoured applications, by way of testing.

BTW, I read all of your other posts and I am impressed with your knowledge range
