Delete System Volume Information
Posted on 2011-09-06
I know I'm not the first with this subject, but I think I have a different situation :
recently I bought a new laptop with a 120Gb Solid State Drive in it. There is space for a second harddisk so I took the 500Gb out of my old laptop and put it in my new laptop. That 500Gb drive had 3 partitions ,C: for Windows, D: for my data and E: for downloads. Now, since that 500Gb drive is now my secondary drive (Windows 7 is on that SSD), I merged the C:- & D:-partitions using a partition manager. That all went well. That partition manager copied all data on the C:-partition to a directory on the D:-partition. So now I have a directory called "merged_partition_content" with, you might have guessed, a System Volume Information folder inside, that I cannot delete !!! And that System Volume Information directory is not in use, since my D:-partition already has a System Volume Information directory of its own in the root-directory.
How can I delete the System Volume Information directory out of that merged_partition_content ?
