    Recycle Bin got weird.


    Hello, I recently had a problem with my recycling bin. This happened after I installed windows again on my pc since I was switching my main boot drive. Everything was fine then I noticed something off about my recycle bin. I have it set where files I delete go to the recycle bin, but when I checked there I could see every file that I had installed on my pc is in the recycle bin. I have never gone to delete any files, but they are all there and I have no idea how to resolve this issue. I was wondering if anyone here would have a solution to this weird issue I have. This is a link to a recording of what it looks like. Does anyone know how to fix this issue?

    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

    Hi, Scout-86.

    Bare with me. I'm only a student in Information Technology. I believe the recycle bin might be corrupted, causing it to vanish from the desktop completely.

    Try one of these two fixes and see if helps.

    Solution 1:

    • Step 1: Select Start -> Settings -> Personalization -> Themes -> Desktop icon settings.
    • Step 2: Make sure the checkbox for Recycle Bin is checked, then select OK. You should see the icon displayed on your desktop.

    Solution 2:

    • Step 1 Run Command Prompt as an administrator.
    • Step 2 Type the command rd /s /q C:\$Recycle.bin and press enter.
    • Step 3 Type exit to close the Command Prompt window

    I hope this helps!
