    Still this is not possible if the System Volume Information got corrupt. On deleteing it you get (translated from Swedish): "Was not able to count-up the objects inthe container. Access Denied". How do I solve that?

      RogerH: To delete the "C:\System Volume Information" folder, try this procedure (if you don't want to delete the folder skip the last command):
      1. Disable System Restore.
      2. Boot Windows in Safe Mode
      3. Open command prompt as admin and give the following commands in order:
      takeown /F "C:\system volume information"
      takeown /F "C:\system volume information" /r /d y
      icacls "C:\system volume information" /grant Administrators:F
      icacls "C:\system volume information" /grant Administrators:F /t
      rd "C:\system volume information" /S /Q

    re: WIN 10, SVI internal and external drives incl. USB, SD-Cards and even ramdisk.

    Thanx Lakonst2013, does what it says on your tin.

    Unfortunately SVI occurs again once in a while again despite all backup and
    restore services switched off.

    After so many years on XP already, MS still wants to crap our lawn with it…
