Now make sure you have "show hidden files " selected and also hide extensions of known files NOT selected and "Hide protected operating system files" also NOT selected.
I guess this will enable you at least to see the contents of the System volume information folder?
those are my default settings, and still trying to double click on E:\System Volume Information gives an error window: ... is not accessible. Access is denied.
even in the Command Prompt i get Access is denied error.

i never till now noticed that there was a More Options tab!
(i hardly ever the Disk Cleanup utility).
unfortunately the Clean up button under System Restore cleans up all
restore points except for the last. doesn't give you any choice as to which ones to remove. still better than nothing i guess.
if you can figure out a way to get into the System Volume Information i'd like to learn of it!
