Avoid & Delete "System Volume Information" etc.
Posted on 2016-10-28
I am going to connect a hard drive belonging to a PVR* into a WIN10 PC using an external caddy.
As it is going back into the PVR, I don't want windows to mess it up by writing System Volume Information & Recycle Bin etc. to it.
(I'll be using specialised software called ExPVR to read from it)
This is my preparation so far .....
1) Turn off Anti-Virus
2) Make sure that System Restore is set to on for C: only.
3) GPEDIT > Do not allow locations on removable drives to be added to libraries setting. (Enabled)
Do I need to do anything else?
* PVR = Personal Video Recorder
A supplementary question .....
I have a number of flash drives with unwanted System Volume Information folders.
How do I get rid of them?
