Windows 7/deleting data on drive D

Question
I want to remove all data on D, data which I have previously saved there, but can only do that in safe mode. However  when I return to normal mode I find that everything is still there. What could be the problem?

Answer
Hello Aziz,

Drive D: is not a physical drive, rather it is a partition on your solitary Hard Drive.  For technical reasons, I would suggest that this partition, (D:\) is not edited in any way unless you are in the Tech industry and know and accept the risks associated with such changes.

Kind regards,
Steve
