    System Volume Information

    Hello.
    I have a HDD with 240GB (3 partitions: C: (Windows, 60GB), D: (Disc2), E:
    (Disc3)).
    When I scan my local disk E with "Windows Defender", i see in "Objects" area
    something like that: "System Volume Information\_restore{ bla
    bla}\RP71\A0009578.exe bla bla" or "Recycler\ bla bla \ Adobe Photoshop bla
    bla\" or "System Volume Information\_restore{ bla bla }\ bla bla \
    CounterStrike bla bla " or other games and applications what was on this
    partition in the past when i was running Windows XP... (now Vista)

    What represents that things? What is wrong, i delete that things along time
    ago, but there apears... :|

    I believe if you turn off Sytem Restore and reboot they will be gone. Then
    restart System Restore. All restore points will be deleted.

    RE: System Volume Information

    The System Volume Information folder contains two things:
    1. Your system restore points, which are snapshots of relevant parts of your
    computer at certain points in time
    2. The search index

    You can delete the restore points in the System Control Panel, and you can
    change the Indexing options in the Indexing Options Control Panel.
