  3. Is $Recycle.Bin and System Volume Information folders safe?

    Recently, I see some strange folders named "$Recycle.Bin" and "System Volume Information" which are attributed
    hidden. When I search the internet for these, I became literally confused! Some say, it is a virus/malware (named
    Recycler) while others speak of this being a system file.

    Notifications:

    • When I tried to delete $Recycle.Bin folder, it requires the administrative power, and if granted, gets deleted. But in a second, it also gets replaced with a new folder just with the same name. So literally, I am not able to remove this
      folder.
    • When I tried to open the System Volume Information folder, It shows a pop-up displaying access denied ...
    • When I tried to delete the System Volume Information folder, it doesn't happen, and displays the same access denied information.
    • The two folders appears on every partitions available.
    If these are some kind of malware, why is my Mcafee Internet Security unable to detect it?

  4. System Volume Information folder showing on my Desktop

    Huge System Volume Information folder

    My System Volume Information folder is consuming 628 Gb of a 1 Tb partition, so Windows is showing I'm almost out of space. The partition is not the system [boot] drive and System Restore is turned off for this drive.

    I used TreeSize to list the files and they have names like "\System Volume Information\{61d4861b-edab-11e8-8d2e-acf20b7e7629}{3848876b-c126-4e58-b7ae-04047e1cc752}". One of the files is 90.7 GB.

    I've tried Disk Cleanup>Cleanup system files, and it finds nothing to clean up. How can I free up this space?
