Retrospect finds strange files. What/where are they.

They are stored in the hidden "System Volume Information" folder at the root of your drive(s).

 

I think they hold the 'restore points' created by the "System Restore" feature of Windows. Does anyone know if they can be safely excluded from backups?

 

Thanks for the feedback.If that's what they are, I would think it would be OK to exclude them. I've now done exactly that.Thanks
