Usually you can just disable System Restore on the external drive and do an unused space erase, it does the same thing. You are also right that you can't delete the System Volume Information folder.rgerard said:Thanks David.

I'm running as an administrator in Windows Vista Ultimate. Suggestions appreciated!
