Check it out. I've got an an old hard drive sitting around and I want to use it for school. Need to install fedora on it. I don't want to do a complete reformat of the drive but it's currently full and I need to make space for fedora. Now the drive used to have windows 7 on it and it's being funny about deleting alot of the old windows crap. I'm currently using the drive as secondary storage and I'd like to continue doing that at least in some fashion. So what I want to know is, is it possible to partially format a hard drive? Removing some of the content without erasing everything? And if not how do I get permission to delete alot of this windows crap?
