I want to format a partition but the system is using the "system volume information" folder on the empty drive. I turned off monitoring for the drive, but it still won't let me delete it or format it. Can I format it using a floppy boot disc or will that screw something up?

ya, you'd have to format it using a boot disk or the winxp disk. system volume information is used for purposes otehr then sys restore and will always exist otherwise

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
