Hello,

 

I think I have a corrupt system volume information file on my computer.  It's about 8 gigs and seems to grow evertime I defrag.

Not sure what to do?  Help.

Are you referring to a file used by System Restore?   Please post the file path.

Hi Louis,
 

It's just the c:\system volume info file itself.  I used 'system to system protection to configure' in control panel to delete the file.  But everytime I defrag it increases again and then I have to go through the aforementioned steps again. thanks.

Well...that's a system file and it's related to System Restore, which I do not enable/use.

 

But better info than I can dream up is Here.
