    recycle bin

    Hi George,

    To prevent your files from being deleted from the Recycle Bin, we suggest increasing the maximum file size your Recycle Bin can keep by following the steps below:

    • 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.
    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    DELETE Recycle Bin & Contents in Windows 10 ??


    I used Unlocker to get rid of ALL the "Protected" Files I had in C:\ temp folder from a NovaBackup Restore.
    ALL deleted files t into the Recycle Bin. I forgot to change setting in Recycle Bin Properties to Delete files and NOT save them. Well, ALL the files are now in Recycle Bin and even Unlocker can't empty the Recycle Bin !!

    How can I DELETE Recycle Bin and ALL it's contents ??

    deleted recycle bin

    Hello, I understand that you have accidentally deleted Recycle Bin from your Desktop. You can restore recycle bin from the Windows 10 settings. Follow the steps here:

    (This is not an official Microsoft source, however, I assure you that this method is legit)

    Hope this helps!
