While I may know to use a command window and a command like DIR *.* /A to see hidden and more items, many users might use Explorer which is hard-coded to not show file or disk content but deliver some "experience" to the user.
Be clear how you are looking at said folder. To really take a look there, I suggest a KNOPPIX CD since it doesn't have such methods to hide content.
The SVI folder on my C drive (where OS is installed) is empty, System Restore is activated on this drive. While reading about this folder I understand it is to store restore information so I don't know why it is empty as I have several restore points but have never tried them. If something is messed up I would like to correct it before I need to restore.
Running Windows XP Professional.
Thanks for any help,
