    System Volume Information Inaccessible (XP Pro)

    Exploring my local HD, I received an error message that reads:
    <center>"C:System Volume Information is not accessible.
    Access is denied.
    "</center>
    I also noticed the "hide" attribute box is checked and greyed out.

    Now why would this be? - and - Is there a way around this?

    <hr>why would this be<hr>
    That would be to prevent 90% of the computer using public from completely hosing their system. The other ten percent have already hosed their system and don't care. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    It's part of the System Restore tool. You might be interested in this:

    ......I see!

    Per your soft warning, I will attend to hyper-awareness to avoid a good hosing. <img src=/S/hosed.gif border=0 alt=hosed width=73 height=24> Thanx for the resource!

    The reason I attempted access was 1) I was playing Nancy Drew in an effort to locate a clue in which to resolve the modem sound issue and 2) was that my antivirus program keeps alerting me to the fact there exists Aelop_joke program (which is harmless) and to shut it up I tried to allow a vaulting, but it failed to detect it on a manual scan or simply would not allow sequestering from the System Volume.

    The link you provided was quite fruitful. Thank you! I was able to enable access and control of nearly everything but special permissions. The hide attribute was still greyed out, but these are impertinent items I can figure out at some future date in my being a regular mouse potato.
