  1. system cannot find the path specified (Recycle Bin Corrupted)


    Had this annoying recurrent message every time I would perform any operation on any file: "Your recycle bin is corrupted, do you want to delete it?"
    I would say yes, then it would find a number of files for which he could not find the path, and the deletion would abort. Same message would appear in the next few seconds.


    Tried all I could find on all communities.

    Such as : ]

    >rd /s "[drive]:\$recycle.bin

    and

    >powershell Clear-RecycleBin -force


    These commands would not help, also not while running as administrator, and also not in Safe Mode.


    The only thing that finally worked for me is to issue the following command:


    Elevated cmd run

    >powershell

    >Clear Shell:RecycleBinFolder -force


    All the lost directories and files quickly scrolled on the screen then disappeared to make space for a refreshed screen with just the [drive]\: prompt.

    Careful: as far as I can see, this removes ALL files and directories contained in ALL BINS on all connected drives.

    Not sure how far that's true for removable or network drives.

    :)
