    Hi, Everyone,

    I bought a new computer about a month ago. (HP Pavilion dv6985se). I began the process of burning a copy of the system files, but, stopped when I realized I did not have the right discs and deciding I was just going to buy it from HP. Now, I am stuck with those files waiting to be burned in my D drive. When I open the folder, it warns me not to tamper with these files because I could delete other files in the process that could prevent me from restoring the system files in case of a failure. Is there anyway I can delete those files? I don't want to continue the burning as it would have taken 17 discs. I appreciate it if someone could answer this for me. Thanks!
