It is IMPORTANT that you do not delete these files. They are very important to the operating system.

Instead, you can hide:

  • Open the Options folder by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, appearance and personalization, and then clicking Folder Options.
  • Click the view tab.
  • Under Advanced settings, make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" and "Hide protected operating system files ' are not checked, and then click OK.

    These 2 files are normal for any installation of Windows.

    $recycle.bin contains data relating to the trash and the System Volume information contains the Restore Points to restore the system on each disk.

    Normally, these folders are hidden by default.

    In file Explorer, click the view tab in the Ribbon toolbar.

    In the Options Menu, select folder and search options.

    In the Folder Options window, select the view tab.

    Select the option do not show hidden files, folders, and drives.

    Click apply/OK.


  • How to remove an infected file in the folder SYSTEM VOLUME INFORMATION on T43?

    Respected Sir/Madam,

    Please suggest some methods on how to DELETE the infected on this hidden folder?


    pleas suggest alternative methods to get rid of this infection.

    Thank you!

    SYSTEM VOLUME INFORMATION is your Restore.As system an alternative to do a factory restore, try flushing the system restore, then you can start fresh. This procedure will not delete your saved data and apps like restoration to the State of the plant would be.

    In order to remove the XP System Restore Points:
    (On XP, you must be logged in as an administrator to do.)
    Go to start > run and type msconfig and press ENTER.
    When opens in msconfig, click Launch System Restore.
    On the next page, click System Restore settings on the left.
    Check the box enable the system restore.

    Reset. Reassemble and turn on system restore. A new Restore Point is created.

    So, if you still have problems, it would mean that you have active running malware, or you have run at the same time a scanner that was falsely reported as this file, please come back. Often our malware removal tools are captured by General scanners as "Hacktools.

  • Formatting the USB in Windows XP disk, create a folder "system volume information" How can I overcome this problem

    Hello team, I tried to format my 2 GB to Format NTFS USB in WINDOWS XP. When I format the drive, it has been formatted sucssfully, but in the formatted disk, a folder is created named as 'System Volume Information '. I tried to remove my USB drive safley but it show and error as "the generic Volume is used in another program... '. ».  Why this happens, the 'System Volume Information' folder is a virus? How can I fix this problem... reply me as soon as possible... Thank you all...


    It does seem like a virus. Since you're a NTFS format, it should be a system folder. System folder is present on NTFS volumes and is used for system restore points.

    If you want to remove, you may need to format the drive to FAT32.

  • Microsoft Windows Vista: Rebuild the system volume information folder

    Greetings to everyone.

    (1) the Crypto ransomware locker has done the thing is on a friends laptop last week. This is a laptop HP DV900 Microsoft Windows Vista. Unfortunately, we have re-installed Vista, from the recovery partition, before attempting to restore the system, using the system restore. It is my understanding that the system volume information folder, contains files, such as excel and word files, which can be restored, but they are stored by Vista, in a special encrypted way.

    If I could get it back or if I got the complete information system volume, would be possible to replace the current and to restore the system to a time before the ransomware hit?

    (2) in fact, I've used a file recovery program and was able to recover a huge file with the name:

    {11d89a13-09a9-11e4-9917-cb6a370b41f2} {3808876b-c176-4e48-b7ae-04046e6cc752}

    This file is approximately 1.99 GB, and is dated on 17/07/2014. I suspect that the virus deployed on 18/07/2014 as the most important Excel and word files have the date of last modification of 18/07/2014. And those files that have changed on the 18/07/2014 cannot be open - unless I have change the extensions of excel to .csv file, in which case excel files open, but the info is still obviously encrypted.  OK, so I have the part of the system volume information folder content, which seem to be of the part that contains the files there, as this is a fairly large file.

    My question is this: is a reconstruction of the folder system volume information, based on this possible of the file? In other words, using this file I have cancelled/recovered, can we restore Vista from this file?

    Thank you for your time.

    You cannot use the system restore to recover files from the user.  Restore points would be zero because of the new facility.  Update of installation dates would be irrelevant as well as software installations.  The new installation files will take precedence.

  • C drive properties 'System Volume Information' and D disk error

    I did previously press properties of drive C and press the safety button don't miss. Now my pc c diving all the file disappear and turn into "System Volume Information" folder only. If I try to search previous folder still can enter in through to find the name of the folder. In fact, I would like to know can get any method back to my previous version of pc that can see the folder back. Indeed pretty weird as the last time I try to use the search function can always get the desired file name that I used to have. But currently when I remember one of the things to look for, but it cannot search again. Not sure when I'm going to fix the system, the file appears again. My C drive disk space not reduce but just show the 'System Volume Information' folder but not show anything this either inside after click the folder. Not sure you have encounter this problem or not.

    Next to my disk error C, my D drive also seem to mistake, as evidenced by the "Valorisation" folder but doesn't show anything. But when I click on the search button, can find some files as shown in my D drive path. Don't know how to recover my files.

    If you know who are faced with this problem and the method to solve, can share with me.

    In any case, thank you very much.
