Error Copying System Volume Information

Post by cobian »

My backup of my drive gives me an error like this: "An error occurred while copying "D:\System Volume Information\" to "F:\}": Access is denied

System Volume Information is a folder that's found on every computer partition. It's a hidden system folder that your computer's System Restore Tool uses to store its information and restore points. This folder is used by Windows for system-level functions. That's why you can't access it.

This folder AND the folder $RECYCLE.BIN should always be excluded from a task.
