    Recycle Bin in recovery partition filling


    The previous installation of Win 10 on one laptop failed. It wouldn't boot past first first Logo. After trying many options, decided to do a clean install. This was while using recovery USB stick.

    Installation went fine and boot problem is fixed.

    However, I started to get warnings that the Recovery partition was nearly full. It was about 450MB, so I increased that to 1.gGB. Then I noticed that anytime I deleted something, it ended up both in Recycle bin on Desktop as well as in Recycle bin in Recovery partition. This no doubt was reason for warnings about partition being full.

    If I deleted something on Desktop (I had put several software setup packages there), shouldn't they just show up in C: drive recycle bin?

    Any way I can tweak this to avoid Recovery partition from filling up?

    :)

    REcycle Bin filling recovery partition.

    I got some useful help on the Tens forum.

    Problem seems to be that when installing windows 10 from the recovery disk, it didn't create the proper type of recovery partition. There should be no drive letter and it should not be a Primary partition.

    Problem was solved by setting partition id to 27

    from command prompt

    diskpart

    sel disk 0

    sel partition 3

    set id=27

    exit

    What is this stick ? is it Windows Installation USB or is it Windows Recovery that you created ?
    Recovery partition is a special partition and should not contain $RECYCLE.BIN. How did you increase this partition to 1GB ?

    Post a screen shot of Disk Management so we can see what you currently have:
    Screenshot - Take in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Also, open Admin command and type:
    diskpart
    list disk
    select disk # =====>where # is the disk id of your Windows
    list partition
    exit

    Post the result.

    topgundcp;1258163 asked: What is this stick ? is it Windows Installation USB or is it Windows Recovery that you created ?

    Its is a Windows recovery USB as described here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-ca/...ecovery-drives One option on that drive when nothing else works, is to reinstall Windows from within
    the recovery app. Which is what I did.

    The Recycle bin in the recovery partition was, I presume, created by the windows install or recovery disk creation. I didn't put it there!

    I first created some unallocated space using Windows disk management to shrink C:. But Had to use AOMEI to extend the recovery partition (Win doesn't have that option)

    Post a screen shot of Disk Management so we can see what you currently have:

    I would do that and the other Admin CMDs, but currently using Win7 laptop because during restart, Win 10 seems to have gone into and endless loop! Don't turn your computer off etc Now about 2 hours!

    I have been around Windows ever since a version first came out for Apple ][ computers. But Win 10 is relatively new to me. I do know how to take screenshots and use the snipping tool. What I need, is an explanation from someone who understands Win 10 as to why all deleted items end up in the Recovery partition Recycle bin. Does anyone have a clue??

    Well completing that tutorial would give us a look to see if we can see the problem.
    It was just a suggestion not a demand.

    Have a nice day.

    If I see the Recycle Bin on other partitions or drives than the C:, System or Boot drive I turn it off on those. RIght-click it and choose Properties, should show the partitions available and where to turn it off for some of those.

    Just as a test, I deleted the $RECYCLE.bin /recycle bin folders that were on the Recovery partition along with all the files. Then checked the recycle bin on the Desktop. Everything had been emptied there too. I then created a desktop short cut called TEST and deleted it. It was in the Desktop Recycle bin. But new Recycle.bin/Recycle folders had been created in the Recovery partition and the deleted shortcut was there too. So somehow the two are linked.

    You wanted some pics:

    I have looked at those and both locations are listed. But I don't recall a way to turn one off? Just adjust the size. Just looked at Win 7 and I don't see a way to "turn off" a recycle bin??

    Recycle Bin in recovery partition filling

    Hey agent99,
    I don't think the Recovery Drive is suppose to have a Drive Letter. When you used AOMEI to resize it gave it one and along with that the $Recycle.bin. I think, you need to clean up / delete all the un-needed stuff in the Recovery Drive and remove the Driver Letter, then reboot.

    OK, I did know I could do that. What puzzles me, is why the same deleted files end up in the recovery partition and the "main" Recycle bin. Maybe for some reason, Win 10 thinks that the REC Recycle Bin is the main one and all we see is a copy of it on the Desktop . But there are two listed - One for C: and one for D:

    The 'Recycle Bin' is a virtual folder - the 'real' recycle bins (pural) are the hidden $RECYCLE.BIN folders on the root of each drive. When you delete a file it is move to this hidden folder on the same drive. The 'Recycle Bin' is a composite view of the contents of all these $RECYCLE.BIN folders, it does not mean that a copy of the deleted file has magically appeared on every one of your drives.

    Two things appear to be wrong with your Recovery Drive, the first is that it has a drive letter (it shouldn't) and the second is that it is marked as a 'Primary Partition' (it should show as a 'Recovery Partition'). Neither of these faults will stop it working as a recovery partition, but they are the reason a recycle bin has appeared on the recovery drive.

    Correctly configured, you should not have any access to the recovery drive from within windows. Even Disk Management can only show that it exists, but cannot make changes to it. No doubt it got changed to a normal partition when you tried to enlarge it. What did you use? MiniTool?

    This is how it should look:
