Please do NOT open ticket for the Beta. This was clearly stated (in bold actually) in the release notes/announcement, you should read them more carefully. You can either go to the  Beta forums or on the  #vbox channel on IRC.

To answer your question, this is not VirtualBox that's creating the "System Volume Information", that's Windows that does it for any volume it mounts as Read/Write. Just try to put a USB stick on a Windows computer, real or virtual; you'll see that folder.

The same happens when you insert a USB stick on an OSX computer; it creates a ".DS_Store" file, and a ".fseventsd", a ".Spotlight-V100" and a ".Trashes" folders. That's the way things are in RealLife™.

This ticket should be closed as [Invalid].
