Need to remove ghosted out folders on media HDD

Ok I've got two folders that are showing up on my media HDD ghosted out

These are showing up in my main list of main folders, so I do not want them in the list as it throws me off a little.

The two that are ghosted that I would like to get rid of are:

$RECYCLE.BIN
System Volume Information

Thanks

Those are put in place on each drive when Vista/Win7 are installed...

They are System Folders and should be left alone...

they didnt show up until a few months after I've already had my media HDD up & running.

They are throwing off my entire list of contents.

How do I make them disappear?

You have probably gone into Folder Options and chosen to "Show Hidden Files". Go back to Folder Options and choose "Hide System Files".

Trying to remove folders from Media Center. I went through settings, clicked on remove folders. But it doesnt help any. They are still there. Is there another way? I am not trying to remove the actual folders, just preventing them from showing up in the Media Center. Thank you for any tips.
