  1. Recycle bin Issue ?

    Last month I looked at my recycle bin and it has over 7,000 files in it. Each time I went to empty the bin it would crash and leave all the files so I had to go through individually and delete the files. But now it seems that files keep popping back up in the recycle bin even though I never deleted anything the files returning are the ones I deleted before.

    And whenever they return it messes with the wifi of the laptop and it refuses to load any pages I may have open. It is not a wifi issue this has happened at different places with different wifi and the issue still persisted.

    Note: I have run windows defender full scan and it didnt pop up any malware or virus. I have to empty the recycle bin multiple times a day and if I don't for a few hours it begins to pop up more files the most I saw was 2-4 hrs no deleting and ended up with over 700 files in recycle bin

    • Under the Settings for selected location, select Custom size.
    • Fill up the box for your allotted maximum file size for your Recycle Bin.

    Recycle bin Issue ?

    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!
