don't know the second one, but I use the windows button and 'e' at the same time to open explorer takes you into main directory listing all poss drives then click on c: or whatever you want, also I change view (little icon to the right of folders icon) to 'details' cos I like it better this way (easier to read quickly)

'system volume information' is System Restore data - so if you use SR then you need it.

If you don't have the Windows key on your keyboard, or just want an alternative method of opening Windows Explorer to show your drives, not your folders ...

"Here's how you get the Windows Explorer to automatically open to the C: drive:

Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories and right click on the Windows Explorer.

Click on the Properties command.

In the Windows Explorer Properties dialog box, change the entry in the Target text box to read the following:
%SystemRoot%\explorer /n, /e, /select, C:

Click Apply and then click OK. "
