    If you had a dual boot of XP or 7 along with Vista there you would simply boot into the other version to right click and select delete. While in Vista you have to right click on the folder itself in order to uncheck the read only box found on the properties screen. You may need additional permissions for your user account in order to see that done however.

    If you are browsing to the "C:\users\(present user name)\documents\" and have a folder found there leading to the usb device and right click on the sub folder found there the "read only" box will likely be darkened so you can simply drag it into the recycle bin or right click and choose the delete option.

    The first attached image here shows the read only box that will be unchecked in order to see the folder removed even when that opens up to another drive or device. The second shows the permissions for the present user account where full control has to be present in order to allow for removing the folder to begin with.

    The 8 images here will take you step by step through the quick process of seeing that removed. This is with a folder mounted from a different hard drive being removed. The change of attributes takes a little longer if the drive is still plugged in but sees the same result of removing the folder from the main boot drive.

    Basically the mounted drive is actually a custom folder acting as a shortcut to the flash drive or another hard drive. Once you uncheck the read only box preset during the initial creation process and watch the attributes changed it becomes nothing more then any other folder. You simply send it on it's way from there.

    Yes for the most and only a possible no! it wouldn't be necessary.

    For the first time without the full control type permiisions the read only would have to have that unchecked. Once you have administrative permissions and full control after taking ownership like I have here the folder will go right into the recycle bin with that still checked off.

    When going to empty the recycle bin here for the folder seen there? Say "Good Bye!" to one folder! That was with the read only box still checked off but already having the elevated administrative permissions. The uncheck simply makes that a little easier if you don't have full permissions at this time.
