A removable hard disk is shown in Computer Management on Windows 7, as primary partition (F) and logical disk (G). I tried to delete the folder "System Volume Information" including two sub-folders on the (F) partition. The folder, according to the date, was probably created by the System Restore utility in Windows XP.
It is not possible to delete this folder from within Windows Explorer. The command processor shows the folder, but entering the command F:>rmdir system volume information\ /S returns the error message "The system cannot find the specified file"
A further complication is that the Protection tab in the System Property Sheet - only lists the logical disk (G). The primary Partition (F) is missing.
Using the Folder option to hide system and hidden folders has no effect. BTW, drives (C), (D), (G) are formatted as NTFS, only the drive in question (F) is formatted as FAT.
Does anyone have a solution, other than reformatting the disk?
Any help will be greatly appreciated
