    "$Recycle.bin" and "System volume information" are system folders. $Recycle.bin is the container for files in the recycle bin and the other contains system restore points and other important system information. The average computer user shouldn't even be aware that these folders even exist. That is why they are hidden. Under normal situations neither the folder nor it's contents should be deleted or modified in any way.

    thank for your brilliant response.
    but the issue is, these files were not showing before only of late i saw them appear on my drive. How should I hide them again so that I can't see them on the drive again.
    thanks
