CACLS Bug: Silent abort when reaching "System volumen information" folder


Extraordinary Member
When I go to the root directory of my partition D: and enter


then the scanning of all my files and folders for Security settings starts.
After a while the process reaches the (hidden, system) folder

"System Volume Information"

...and abort silently.
I think this is clearly a bug. CACLS should either skip or write a comment "folder inaccessible".
Aborting is a no-go.

Or is there a workaround (flag) ?

ICACLS have the same bug.

Did you try including the /C switch in the command?

Yes, it aborts with /C too
