    Have you tried a heat gun to soften the glue and use a plastic spatula to pry it off.

    The way I have done similar is use a long handle ice scraper. Then use latex modified floor leveling cement.

    You can use an adhesive remover-apply to the floor and let it soak a couple of hours and then use a scraper to remove.

    Didn't know there was 330 sqft. We had the luxury vinyl laid down after the engineered hardwood was on cement. We had the flooring company come out and they used a machine to get it up. I tried myself, but way too big a job and it was splintering everywhere. I believe you can rent such a machine at HD or Lowes if you want to do it yourself.
