    Win10 Recycle Bin no longer lets me recycle stuff to it


    I have a major problem and every solution I have checked out on many sites do not work. My recycle bin won't let me recycle anything.


    Win10 Recycle Bin no longer lets me recycle stuff to it [​IMG]


    The only clue I have is that my Avira told me that my download of Monopoly had something bad in it so I tried to see for myself in Sandboxie. Then after closing out Sandboxie I deleted Monopoly installer but it seems that it screwed up my recycle bin.

    I later noticed this so I don't know how that happened. I made a test file to get this to show again and took a screenshot:

    It seems it is hung up on the one file that does not exist anymore and I can't get past it. Rebooting it did not fix it and neither did running any run commands such as rd /s /q C:\$Recycle.bin.

    System File Checker found nothing to fix.

    I am at a loss at knowing what to do to fix this.

    Help? Please?

    :)

    • 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.
