    I have Windows Vista final installed on my main drive. I had RC2 (5744)
    installed on another drive when I was testing it. I was just going to delete
    the windows/users/program files etc from the drive to remove the install (I
    have removed everything I needed from that install).

    When I try to do this it gives me access denied on some of the folders. My
    account is an admin account, I tried to change the permissions over so I own
    all the files on the drive but, some folders under the vista beta still
    gives me access denied (same with each of the folders).

    Yea, I know, I should format but, I have lots of stuff on that drive that I
    need to go though and don't have time right now, I just need to get rid of

    Any clue ?

    Never mind, figured it out.

    Has to remove the "creator" permissions from the folder and give Admins on
    the current install, then I deleted them fine.

    In case anyone wanted to know.
