Subfloor removal


I will be estimating the removal and replacement of a subfloor that had major water damage. My question is about the difficulty of removing a subfloor. I haven't removed anything as of yet but I am assuming it was glued and screwed. What is the best way to remove the plywood without damaging the floor joists? Any suggestions are appreciated.

If your plywood is in fact glued down and screwed... there really is no way to proceed with an expectation of not damaging the joists at least some.

Even without the screws and glue it's a major PITA.
