    I am using Haxchi but was wondering how it came to this folder? Didn´t have this folder before. In this folder are two files:
    -IndexerVolumeGuid
    -WPSettings.dat

    What is this?

    It's used by windows for the recycle bin. You can remove it if you want. It's normally hidden

    System Volume Information is actually for system restore and search indexing. $RECYCLE.BIN is the trash. You can delete them both, though. :)
