It might be worth checking how much space the files are taking up. If these unwanted files are all that is on the drive, go to the drive and without going into it press alt + entre to go into properties. Then it will tell you space used, space free etc.

Hi All

Santa brought me a Western Digital 320GB USB hard drive for Christmas. Great how he always seems to know what you want isn't it?

I simply want to use this drive for copying and pasting files and folders. I don't want to do all the fancy things I can do with it such as automatic syncing, using the Google search etc. When I plug in the drive there are some things preinstalled for doing these things. If I delete them from the drive making it completely empty, will it damage the function of the USB drive in any way for simple saving and pasting of documents? Or does it not matter at all? Want to get rid of it as it is obviously using up space, but don't want to cause any problems.
