System Volume Information folder extremely large on my Exchange 2010 server

My system volume information folder shows 100+ GBs in size.  When looking at my drive properties it shows that over 120 GBs is being used.  My other folder make up the difference of about 20 GBs.  So...  It seems this folder is truly taking up 100+ GBs is physical storage.  Why is this?

I'm backing up via VEEAM.  I noticed I was running on snapshots for months...  Once I consolidated the snapshots it shrunk down.
