    Recycle bin corrupted


    I have the same problem as many others, ie the recycle bin being corrupted. I've tried doing what has been suggested - going to cmd, being administrator and then pasting in the text given (also changing the drive to my drive that is corrupted). After I enter it always comes up 'access if denied' - I don't know what to do next.


    Can anyone help?

    :)

    Hi George,

    To prevent your files from being deleted from the Recycle Bin, we suggest increasing the maximum file size your Recycle Bin can keep by following the steps below:

    • Right click on the Recycle Bin icon.
    • Under the Settings for selected location, select Custom size.
    • Fill up the box for your allotted maximum file size for your Recycle Bin.
    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Recycle bin corrupted

    Recycle Bin is corrupted

    Hi SivrosJ,

    Each drive contains a hidden Recycle Bin system folder, which are hidden and is used as a temporary storage when you delete files on that drive. Just as any other system files, it can also be corrupted and thus, giving you this error message. With that being
    said, can you tell us if this F: drive that you have is a USB flash drive or a
    portable hard drive? Please advise.

    In the mean time, I suggest that you perform SFC scan on your external storage device and see if it helps. Here's how:

    1. Type cmd on the Cortana search box, right click on the result and select
      Run as administrator.
    2. Type sfc /SCANNOW /OFFBOOTDIR=f:\ /OFFWINDIR=c:\windows

    NOTE: replace c:\windows with the correct
    drive
    letter if Windows is installed on a different drive. Hit the Enter key and wait until the scan is finished.

    Another step that I can suggest is to reset the Recycle Bin only to the F: drive and see if it helps.

    1. Launch cmd as an administrator.
    2. Type rd /s /q F:\$Recycle.bin
    3. Hit the enter key.
    4. Restart your PC.

    Let us know the outcome of these troubleshooting steps. To notify us and have us get back to you, simply reply to this post.
