  1. Thanks ......This what I always looking for

  2. Does it remove WIN XP?

  3. what if you have files like music or documents in the partiton you want to delete? does that disapear too?

    1. Of course it is. If you want to backup those files goto "C:\Users\{username}\" before starting this tool and copy the files which you want. (Note : the drive in which you installed Windows is assumed as Local disc C and replace {username} with your username)

  4. Does it format or 'erase all content' in the OS drive or just the relevant OS files? I mean, I also have some more files apart from the local documents etc. and the problem is, I can't move them elsewhere.

    1. It will delete OS files only, the other files in the drive will remain untouched.

  5. It works on Windows 7 64-bit (PT-BR), but does not work in Windows 8 Pro PT-BR. On Windows 8, when you click "Scan", it freezes, unresponsive and does not display the drives for choice.

    1. Thanks for reporting. Please follow manual methods given in the article to uninstall specified operating system.
