System Volume Information huge file

I turned off the System Restore feature and tried using the Disk Clean app to remove the 400GB system restore point in my System Volume Information directory. I cannot delete it manually, thus far. Any suggestions?

I would think you could F8 at boot and start up in safe mode or Safe Mode command Prompt and delete it that way then. Worth a try.

Sounds like you may have malware or possibly just need to run chkdsk on it. However you could create a Barts-PE boot disk and then boot up off that and navigate to the SysVol and manually clean it.

This is a newly imaged box at work and I am not able to boot from external media since Bitlocker has been enabled. I am sad that we have to use bitlocker. Thank you, though PaulB!

I ended up re-ACLing the whole dir and setting a boot time script to remove the contents of the dir.
