    I used a photo recovery free download to try to recover some lost
    photos. Unfortunately it created 2, 707 subfolders of data and I cannot
    seem to delete them unless I open each subfolder, then highlight all the
    files and delete. If I try to delete the whole main folder or even one
    of the subfolders my system just hangs. This thing has now left me with
    just 8 G free of a 140 G hard drive (after I have so far manually
    deleted 170 of the 2,707 subfolders. Anyone have any shortcut to get
    this stuff off my hard drive?

    Thanks,
    Jeff
