    Hello to all,

    I have a 250gb external Seagate drive that is nearly full. When I bring it up under OSX, I can see all the files (duh).

    When I bring it up under XP, though, it only shows 6gb worth of data! After doing a bit of research, i've discovered that this is most likely caused by a corrupt System Volume Information folder. However, it's copy protected so I cant delete it.

    Help? Could it be related to something else? I know its not the computer itself, because i've tried this on 3 separate Windows machines, Bootcamp, and VMWare Fusion.
