    System Volume Information (WinXP SP2)

    I just noticed that my C:System Volume Information folder is 674MB in size! This is far more than any other of these files on my other physical and logical disks. This file is not accessible by normal means. How do I trim it?

    It seems to be part of System Restore - you could revise the amount of space you have reserved for it.

    System Volume Information is used by Windows to store System Restore Points; I wouldn't arbitrarily delete items from this folder, even if you could.
    You can set the maximum size fo this folder in the System Restore tab of the System control panel.
    See How to gain access to the System Volume Information folder if you want to view the contents.
