System Volume Info query

    Win XP Pro SP3

    I have One drive with two partitions on one of which sits the Operating
    System whilst the other contains all the data.

    On the OS drive there is a System Volume Information folder which I guess is
    normal.

    There is also a System Volume folder on this data partition. Surely this is
    not nomal ? I have no idea how it got there and would like to get rid of it,
    but just like the real one it says Access Denied. Is there some way to
    delete this folder ?

    It only explains half of the story... the folder is used by several
    other services.
