  1. SpaceSniffer shows 27GB Recycle Bin files after it has been emptied


    I have just emptied my Recycle Bin on Windows 10 Pro but it still shows 27GB of files in SpaceSniffer. These files are not visible in Explorer.

    Does anyone know why this may be and more importantly how I get rid of this unwanted clutter?

    Any advice would be welcome.

    Kind wishes - Pat

  4. SpaceSniffer shows 27GB Recycle Bin files after it has been emptied

    Temporary files shows recycle bin has 4GB in it, but actual recycle bin is empty

    If you refer to my original post, I did not say that my recycle bin is empty. I stated that my recycle bin has over 4GB in it:

    "When I go to the storage on my device and look under temporary files, it shows my recycle bin having 4.84GB in it. However, when I open the recycle bin there are no items in it."

    My storage shows that there is over 4GB in my recycle bin, but there are no files in the recycle bin when I open it. I have already tried everything you have suggested and they do not fix the problem.
