Windows 7: Disable & empty System Volume Info folder on external drive.

Disable & empty System Volume Info folder on external drive.

Hi All

My external HDD has quite a lot of data contained in the system volume information folder. As system restore is not activate on this drive & the drive is used specifically for imaging purposes I take it the data relates to the Win indexing service.

As I am now using a third party search application can I now disable the windows search system & if the system is disabled will this by default empty the SVI folder.

Any relevant advice would be appreciated.

Cheers.

Ich
