    Hi there,

    My SBS 2003 Premium machine was verging on low disk space so I've been
    sweeping out the rubbish and freed up lots of space.

    Whilst doing that I found that my System volume information folder had 15 GB
    or so of files taht were hidden and with file names like:
    {de4f7865-c739-11db-8010-00304825b93f}{3808876b-c176-4e48-b7ae-04046e6cc752}

    What are these files for? And if they are not useful is it safe to delete
    them?

    thanks in advance for all answers

    Kind regards

    Matt Price

    This is a system folder - a part of System Restore; the tool that allows you
    to set points in time to roll back your computer. The System Volume
    Information folder is where Windows stores these points and associated
    information that makes them accessible. I wouldn't recommend deleting
    contents of this folder unless you do have a very good system backup before
    doing so.
