Those 2 folders aren't supposed to be removed....they are SYSTEM folders required by the OS.

am sorry but i have to disagree with you ,they weren't there ,i got them after i used an infected flash memory on my laptop , the system volume information folder is locked and un accesible ,and once i delete the recycler.bin (it is not recycle bin ) folder it will be generated out of no where ,

And I disagree with you. They ARE system folders and they ARE required.

Just to add, there is a big difference between $RECYCLE.BIN folder and recycler.bin that you just added in your "I disagree" post.
$RECYCLE.BIN is a system folder, while recycler.bin could very well be part of some malware or virus plaguing your system.
