How can I clear my hard drive?
I recently overloaded my hard drive with files and now my laptop turns on properly, but will not get past the loading screen. I would like to clear some space on my hard drive or wipe it out completely. I have all my files backed up on an external hard drive, so I wouldn't lose anything if I clear it out. I have tried using single user mode to delete the files, but whenever I try to delete something, it does not permit me because the files are set to "read only". I've heard there's a way to connect the drive to another computer in order to clean it, but I don't know if I'll be able to do that, because some of the ports on my laptop don't function. What's the best way to get my hard drive cleaned?
