Windows 7 System Volume files

Hi,

Have an issue with my Windows7 machine where the System Volume Information folder is capturing more than 50GB data and seems that i am unable to delete those files even as the local ID has full control on the folder

I have currently got 7 restore points and only want to delete 3 oldest as they consume more than 28GB
