  3. System Volume Information contains redundant historical "System Volume Information" files using 80% of my disk

    Hi,

    There are different options available in the Windows 10 operating system that allow you to manage the disk drives on your computer. This includes formatting disk drives or cleaning up junk files.
    The system volume information folder contains the system restore point entries,
    data used by the content indexing service databases that speed up your file searches, the volume shadow copy service for backups, and the distributed link tracking service databases used to repair shortcuts and links.

    Usually, it is not recommended to delete the entries from the System volume information since Windows needs this files. For us to resolve your concern, kindly attempt the steps below to shrink the size of the System Volume Information
    folder:

    • Press the Windows key + x to open the Quick link menu and from the list select
      Control panel.
    • Select System and Security and then from the options presented choose
      System.
    • On the left had the panel of the System information window, select the option
      System protection.
    • Once you have the System properties window open, select the
      System protection tab and then click on the button labeled configure.
    • You can now control how much disk space Windows uses for System Restore points.

    Once you complete the steps you can now attempt to delete the folder and check if this improves the storage space you have on the disk drives.

    We look forward to your response once you complete the steps.
