Delete System Folder in Vista

Likes # 0

I have a redundant folder of System Files which hold 14.5GB. I have tried many ways to delete the folder, by changing ownership etc but the system won't allow it. It continues to say I need permission even though I am administrator. The folder is a left over from when i had a back up of my system on the hard drive and is now redundant.
Any help much appreciated.

My previous message was intended for badhair1963 - I was wondering if he/she had safely accessed that site.

To be honest, I'm not sure whether it's safe or not. I've just heard that other people have used this program to get at files that Windows has locked.

I've never used it, so use at your own risk.
