Hi everyone, so I cloned my old hard drive to a new hard drive, I changed the new one to boot, everything is working fine, but now I have 2 Hard Drives with the same data, can somebody tell me how to delete everything on the old hard drive?

"The clone" should just be a file or files on the other drive.
you should just be able to delete them as normal files.
I mean, I want to delete the original files, not the clone ones, I didn't express myself correctly. The cloned hard drive is the new one with the OS, I want to delete the old one. Can I just simply delete them?
 
First verify, your system can boot with only new drive connected.
After that clean old drive, repartition and reformat it.
diskpart
list disk
select disk x
(Make sure, you select old disk. Data on selected disk will be lost.)​
clean
create partition primary
format fs=ntfs quick
exit
