System Volume Information help

Lately, I've been finding that something has been eating up my computer's harddrive space. I had no idea what it is except that in the end, all of the harddrive space would be completely used up. My friend recommended me that I use SpaceMonger to monitor my harddrive space and that's when I found out where my problem is: System Volume Information.

However, even with that information, I couldn't find a solution to fix it. I went through many forums and some recommended that I lower the space capacity used for System Restore (which I lowered down to 10% 5068MB), which didn't do anything for me. The space just kept getting eaten up. My only temporary solution to this is to reboot the computer, in which case, it clears up most of the space that was previously taken up by the System Volume Information folder but only to start the process over again.

I posted my problem in the Operating Systems » Windows XP™, 2000, 2003, NT forum and got advice from rshaffer61 to go ahead and do what's told in the Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide, which I've done. And he referred me to this forum.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
