    My XP partition is NTFS. I also have a 10 GB partition formatted FAT32 that I use mainly for disk images & some backups. I noticed a hidden folder on this drive called "System Volume Information" and when I opened it, there was a single folder called "Catalog.wci" (about 40+ megs.) What is this and why is it on my data partition? I have indexing turned off for my NTFS partition and System Restore is not monitoring any partitions but the NTFS one. Should I delete the "Catalog.wci" folder or leave it? :confused:

    You will need these files if you want to perform a "factory restore" with your recovery cd.
