I am sorry, I just assumed that you had hidden folders set to be shown.
You need to open up a folder, like the C drive, then on the toolbar, click on Tools, then select Folder Options, then click on the View tab. Under "Files and folders", check the box "Display the content of system folders" and under "Hidden files and folders", select "Show hidden files and folders" and uncheck the box that says "Hide protected operating system files". Click Apply and then click on yes, or ok, in the box that comes up saying something about the risks of setting the system to show you those files and asking if you are sure you want to do this.
If the info in the link that was provided in the post above your last one is correct, then you probably should not delete any, however, that info does not make sense to me as system restore routinely purges old restore points on a first in, first out, basis. If you look at the FIFO log in that folder, you will see how it has removed previous restore points. Since it routinely does that, I do not see how each restore point is dependent on the one before it, but that is just my way of thinking and I am not an expert.
I also see in that article the link above is posted for that just making it so you can access the System Volume Information folder will corrupt the files in it and make them unusable. I do not see why it would do this but be warned, the article does say that so if it is true, you might not be able to use the restore points currently in that folder after changing the permissions to access them in the folder.
Also, just in case you decide to download anything from the link that Jeff posted, please keep in mind that using torrents will often cause your system to become infected
