In Windows XP Home Edition with the NTFS file system, you must use the Cacls tool, which is a command-line tool to display or modify file or folder access control lists (ACLs)
Click Start , click Run , type cmd , and then click OK
Make sure that you are in the root folder of the partition for which you want to gain access to the System Volume Information folder. For example, to gain access the the C:\System Volume Information folder, make sure that you are in the root folder of drive C (at a "C:\" prompt). To get to the root of any partition, make sure you are in that partition and then type "cd\" (without the quotation marks).
Type the following line, and then press ENTER:
cacls " driveletter :\System Volume Information" /E /G username :F
Make sure to type the quotation marks as indicated. Also, if your user name contains a space you'll need to put your username in quotes. This command adds the specified user to the folder with Full Control permissions
Double-click the System Volume Information folder in the root folder to open it
If you need to remove the permissions after troubleshooting, type the following line at a command prompt:
cacls " driveletter :\System Volume Information" /E /R username
This command removes all permissions for the specified user.
