How to access: \System Volume Information\?

Last response: in Windows XP

I have WinXP and I saw that after a Dfrag the report tells me of a file that wouldn't defrag that's under \System Volume Information\ . So I searched for that folder but couldn't find it until I enabled seeing hidden system folders. So I wanted to open it but it said that I have no access (I'm an addmin.). After checking the permissiosn I saw that only System had access. How do I grant the Admin. access? (Yes, I know there's nothing to see there and messing things up would probably screw up my drive).

I know what everyone's been wondering - 2^33634943-1 IS NOT PRIME. Now, wasn't that worth running <A HREF="" target="_new">Prime95</A> for a month to know?

The System Volume Information folder is created when you use System Restore. And so, you should probably be able to access and/or remove the folder if you disable System Restore on that partition, and then set the service to manual.
