Good Afternoon!

 

I Was performing a cleanup on one of my disk drives whe i accidentally moved a folder into System Volume Information and now i can't delete it, apparently it is protected from deletion. I wonder how i can delete this accidentally moved folder.

 

Att,

Hi @marlonbatista 

 

Now the only way I know to delete something in this System Volume Information folder is to set admin as owner first.

If Admin is already the owner, then give it full access to the folder.

Then you can delete the unwanted items and set the owner back to "system" or remove admin's full access.

 

Hope it helps...
