i have recently upgraded my pc and i am useing the old hard drive as slave on the new system. i have now decided that i no longer want to use this hard drive and i am trying to format it, but it wont let me it says "quit any disk utilities or other programs that are useing this drive" as far as i am aware nothing is useing this disk as i have deleted everything off it except one file which i cant delete when i try to open it or delete it, it says access denied, any sugesstions would be greatly appreciatied.
