System Volume Information Access Denied and filling up

This is a Windows 2003 SP2 Server with a C and D drive. The D drive is the
problem. I am running out of disk space and I am sure that it is the System
Volume Information folder. I cannot get in to it though. I get an access
denied error when trying to access it. Things I've done so far; disabled
shadow copy, check that the indexing service was stopped (it was disabled),
restarted the server, restarted Volume Shadow Copy service, Restarted the VSS
SQL Server write, restarted Backup Exec, applied all Microsoft patches.

Seize ownership of this folder, then give full access rights to the
System account and to your own account.

RE: System Volume Information Access Denied and filling up

1. Right-Click the volume drive letter where the large System Volume
Information
folder is located.

2. From the shortcut menu, click "Shadow Copies".

3. You will likely need to click Enable.

4. Set the Maximum size: field to "Use Limit:" and insert something like
100MB and

click Ok.

5. Click Disable to disable Shadow Copies on the volume. You will be warned
about

"deleting existing shadow copies, etc.", Click Yes.

6. Click Ok to close out of the properties dialog for the volume.
