You may lose important data on your folder if you delete this. For example Firefox and Opera profiles use this. The easier alternative is to use Partition Magic 9.00 to reformat your current partitions without having to delete anything. This assumes you have spare space on C: partition. there are other programs that do this but I have actually experienced what you are trying to do and it works well. Be careful if you try it, as I would back up data elsewhere first, it is a powerful utility.

I agree with plantazy. There is an alternative to Partition Magic 9.0. Digtal Dolly. It is a freeware 40 meg download. Create a folder prior to downloading to place it in and expand it. Burn the contains of the folder only to a cd in .iso format. This program is self contained and does not require an operating System to function. It is based off of Red Hat and has a basic GUI. It will do what you need.
