I recently reformatted my USB flash drive which used to be NTFS and is now FAT32.  And yet, I still have my system information folder on the flash drive.  How can I delete this?

It is there because of System Restore.  You can disable System Restore on the USB drive, but removing the folder will be tough from within windows.  You'd be best to re-format after.

Sometimes, even with System Restore disabled on the drive the folder will be created anyhow.

Use Control Panel - System and go to the System Restore to disable.

I went into control panel/system/system restore and did NOT see the drive I'm trying to disable.

I'm also seeing the recycle bin in this usb flash drive.  I don't need a recycle bin on this drive..

I want to delete the recycle bin and the system information folder from this drive.
