    Certain files cannot be accessed whatsoever by me. I have taken ownership of them, all files in them (using a registry hack), and their parent file. Whenever I double-click on them it invariably says: Access is denied.
    Files include:
    • C:\System Volume Information\SPP
    • C:\System Volume Information\SystemRestore
    • C:\System Volume Information\{3808876b-c176-4e48-b7ae-04046e6cc752}.sys
    • C:\System Volume Information\{c2c819e9-eb33-11e3-afd0-c80aa995fe17}{3808876b-c176-4e48-b7ae-04046e6cc752.sys
    • C:\System Volume Information\desktop.ini
    • C:\System Volume Information\MountPointManagerRemoteDatabase.sys
    • C:\System Volume Information\Syscache.hve
    • C:\System Volume Information\Syscache.hve.LOG1
    • C:\System Volume Information\Syscache.hve.LOG2
    • C:\System Volume Information\tracking.log
    • C:\$RECYCLE.BIN\S-1-5-18
    • C:\$RECYCLE.BIN\S-1-5-21-1498137137-3492500151-2336927090-500
    • C:\$RECYCLE.BIN\S-1-5-21-1498137137-3492500151-2336927090-1000
    • C:\$RECYCLE.BIN\-1-5-21-1498137137-3492500151-2336927090-1004

    If you have any ideas, post them.

    They are hidden / protected system files / parts. I tested it, and I couldn't open them.

    Unless you really and truly know what you are doing, I recommend to leave them as they are. The risk for messing your system is high. The info they have, is not of true value for a common user.

    I appear to have been able to acess them by adding my own username to the security properties window, rather than letting the "Administrators" general user group define the permissions.
