You shouldn't try. That folder is used by the OS only, nothing editable inside. Its set to hidden and read-only, needs to stay that way. Messing in there will booger your system hard.

As Bob and Wreck have said, you don't want to play with that one. It's working as intended.

FYI:
Another caveat that you may not know since you changed from fat32 to ntfs is now you will not be able to access any of your files from DOS. For example, with fat32 you could always startup your computer with a 98 startup disk and then access and manipulate the files on your C drive. You can't do that now with ntfs...DOS cannot recognize the ntfs file structure.

But, it's not really a big deal.

My two cents: don't access it like everyone else suggests. There are ways but IT ISN'T NECESSARY.
