Error Copying $RECYCLE.BIN

My backup of my drive gives me an error like this: "An error occurred while copying "D:\$RECYCLE.BIN" to "F:\}": Access is denied

$RECYCLE.BIN is a system folder used by Windows to store the files that are deleted by ALL the users. By default, a user doesn't have access to another user's recycle bin. That's why you get this error.

This folder AND the folder "System Volume Information" should always be excluded from a task.
