    System Volume Info & Recycle Folder

    System Volume Info & Recycle Folder are suddenly showing up in my external USB Drive. How can I delete these?

    Nevermind those folders. They will get recreated by Operating System anyway, even if you delete them. I might be wrong though.

    Windows creates these folders on external drives as hidden system folders so perhaps your "suddenly" comment actually indicates that you have recently changed your File explorer, Folder options to display these items.

    In addition, $RECYCLE.BIN is only created for an HDD, external usb sticks just get a hidden System Volume Information folder.
