    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.

    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 are the two typical Windows system folders. $Recycle.bin is exactly that, the files in the folder are actually moved to when removing other parts of the car. He installed this folder on each drive that you see when you open the Recycle bin icon on the desktop.

    System Volume Information is a system folder and contains all the files that reside on the disk that are included in food, distributed link tracking Service points, content indexing Services and Volume Snapshot Service. This deletion would be a very good way to break your computer.

    You deleted the parameter Hide protected system files that should never be done unless you have a specific reason to do so. The setting is there for a reason.

    $Recycle.bin and System Volume Information are important Windows that are normally hidden system files. Why do you think they are viruses?


    Hi, I use windows 8, in my newly purchased ACER netbook. After that I plugged into a USB port, I scanned the USB drive and found no virus. But after the transfer of some files, I noticed that every reader of my netbook shows two hidden files named "System Volume Information" & "Recycle Bin". It seems strange to me to have these hidden files in each car. However, if I mark on the option "Hide protected files" from the "folder option" in the Panel, they are not shown. My problem is that when I tried the solution of it on the internet, some websites it indicated that the presence of the virus in my pc. I want to know if it has nothing to do with the virus. I expect to correct information and the help of who knows this subject. Thanks in advance. :)

    It is not a virus, it is mandatory for all drives NTFS have these records.  You should go into your Folder Options and click on "Hide protected operating system files" so that they are invisible and cannot be accidentally touched.

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

    Respected Sir/Madam,

    Recently, I have bee affected by a series of blue screen errors. Norton AntiVirus and other well-known software just crash. Update of virus definitions files are reported as being corrupted. Fortunately, I used this SPYWARE DOCTOR which founf a file infected by HACKIT name. ROOTKIT in the SYSTEM VOLUME INFORMATION folder, which is hidden from the usual interface of WINXP.

    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.

  • Cannot delete the System Volume Information trash

    I am running Windows xp on a Dell computer and I recently removed the System Volume Information folder on an external hard drive after the deactivation of the restoration of the system for this drive.  I don't remember how it happened, but the said folder ended up in the trash.  Now every time that I try to empty the trash, I get an error message indicating that access to the file is denied and it cannot be deleted.  I can see the folder in the trash, but I can restore it or delete it.  Does anyone have any ideas on how to solve this problem?

    Thanks for your reply. I tried both of your suggestions, but unfortunately none of them allowed me to remove the stubborn system folder.  I had to start the computer in Mode safe, gives me full control over the folder to the trash (even though I am the administrator) and then finally was able to remove it. For some reason any Security tab does not appear when you talk about the Properties dialog box, unless you are using safe mode.

  • How can you "Invisible", for example "System Volume Information", or "Content.IE5", files be read?

    I have entered in Options files and "Show the hidden files and folders", the value erased "Hide protected operating system files" (and confirmed the potential danger in the pop - up window by changing the files of this type). The problem is, all the programs and questionable scripts see have no problem modifying files that are located in these folders, or using them as a repository for their own excrement.

    I suspect that, because even the unsophisticated malware infections can bypass this 'protection', it is not a block of real access to NTFS.  It's just an arbitrary thing to prevent "the user", which certainly is not always the best judgment. (They buy and place important information about a system designed to be as open to the 'hacking' than that of Windows.)

    Utilities offline, as in recovery, will be able to view them?

    The System Volume Information folder is where system restore points are saved.  As a general rule, you can erase it by disabling the function system restore, reboot, then turn it back on again.
    (Right click on 'My Computer'-> properties-> tab "System Restore").

    If you absolutely have to dwell there, see the following article:

    "Access to the System Volume Information folder"
      <>http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/309531 >

    but do not forget that the locker room apply here (i.e. watch all you want, but do not touch anything).
