Default Need help accessing system volume information

Hi, I need help accessing/getting into: System Volume Information folder in both my hard drives...It won't let me in and when I try to open it says this:


"C:\System Volume Information is not accessible. Access is denied."


Please help. Thanks.

Windows XP Professional using the NTFS File System on a Workgroup or Standalone Computer
1. Click Start, and then click My Computer.
2. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options.
3. On the View tab, click Show hidden files and folders.
4. Clear the Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check box. Click Yes when you are prompted to confirm the change.
5. Clear the Use simple file sharing (Recommended) check box.
6. Click OK.
7. Right-click the System Volume Information folder in the root folder, and then click Properties.
8. Click the Security tab.
9. Click Add, and then type the name of the user to whom you want to give access to the folder. Typically, this is the account with which you are logged on. Click OK, and then click OK again.
10. Double-click the System Volume Information folder in the root folder to open it.

I don't have a "security tab"..and step 7 means to just right click the system volume information folder, right?
