Windows 7: C:\System Volume Information

C:\System Volume Information

C:\System Volume Information

I have system protection(restore) turned off.
And it has 4GB of data in C:\System Volume Information.

How can this be. It is also allowing me to go back to a restore point.

Its part of the system restore feature. So if you dont use that you could disable it and it should remove that folder.

Actually its a good way to defrag. You could turn it off, defrag then turn it back on again.

You could also use tune up utilities. It cleans out the system restore data for you and all the rest of the junk including back ups for the updates. Before I defrag I always run it to ensure I'm not defragging the stuff which is of no use.

Im not a huge fan of tune up utilities, they tend to mess things up one way or the other.

Ccleaner now includes a function under the Tools heading to remove selected points.
