    removing a created volume that has 7 installed

    Ok so I wanted to system restore awhile back and to make a long story short now have an entire partition I don't want WITH an entire copy of win 7 installed on it. Please note this is not a system created normal disk chunk, it's created by me and redundant. In other words I don't need the files to boot, but the system won't let me delete the whole thing because it does have system files on it. I think I understand the issue correctly but I can't find a way to override the block on deleting the entire volume. Of course I would probably not be able to "extend" my other os to it, but I just want it gone. Is there a way?

    ZeroOne,

    Download the Partition Master Mini-Tool and create a boot disk/usb key from it. You can then boot from disk/usb key and use the tool to delete the partition.
    Make sure you have an Image backup before attempting an operation of this severity! HTH

    BTW: You could also use EaseUs Partition Master Free.
