    You can't, SZ is especially hidden from the windows OS so as to prevent erasure or other corruption.

    The only way is to delete the SZ all together by removing it and then installing it again However, SZ is meant to be self managing and it should delete older files itself to maintain enough space for images, you can adjust the size of SZ

    Oops! the above relates to ATI but I guess applies also to server....

    Actually, you can if you want to badly enough. You must boot from a Knoppix CD, then you will be able to see into the "Secure Zone". To be able to delete things:

    No problem: boot up Knoppix and find all your local partitions nicely iconicized on the KDE desktop. (Or cruise the file tree to /mnt.) Click on the correct icon, and there are all your files. But they are wisely mounted read-only. Again, no problem: right-click the desktop icon to bring up a nice menu with a "Change read/write mode" option. This mounts the filesystem on the partition as read/write. Now you can delete any file.
