    Windows 10 Recycle Bin Declared "Empty", Malwarebytes scans file C:\$RECYCLE.BIN\S-1-5-21...


    Hello. On my computer, which operates on Windows 10, 64 Bit, I recently watched my Malwarebytes program scan my computer. The scan paused on the Windows Recycle Bin, for a couple of seconds. The Recycle Bin is declared as being empty, but Malwarebytes scanned what looked like a file, or product key, or registry item, in the Recycle Bin. It could be that this entry is always there, and I may have not noticed the scan's identification of it. The scan does not flag this item. It is a set of four alpha-numeric sequences, separated by dashes; it follows the C:\$RECYCLE.BIN\S-1-5-21 file/registry entry "name" that the Malwarebytes scan pauses on. The first three dashes are separated by a group of ten numbers, and the last dash precedes an entry that includes a combination of letters, numbers, and keyboard symbols. I did take a screenshot of this. Following your forum guidelines, I did not post this screenshot, because I realize that the set on letters/numbers might be a product key.


    Is it OK, that this entry or file, appears during the Malwarebytes scan of the Recycle Bin? Thank you for your help- I am just not knowledgeable, in this computer related matter.

    :)

    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.

  3. recycle bin


    I noticed that Recycle bin no longer has a 'global'option. I only looked at Recycle Bin properties, so there might be another place to look (settings?). In Recycle Bin properties, each partition has a size defined for it's own Recycle Bin.

    I wonder if there is something not being communicated across the bins quickly enough when you empty 'it'.
    example
    c:\Recycle Bin is defined as 2 GB
    d:\Recycle Bin is defined as 4 GB
    emptying the bin might take a little longer on e:\ than it does on c:\ and there might be a lag in updating the icon.

    If Brink's suggestion doesn't resolve the issue, try this as a test (assuming you have more than one partition)
    copy a large file on two of your drives (different files, different sizes)
    c:\file1.xyz ~500 MB
    d:\file2.XYZ ~1 GB

    then delete both of the copies
    check Recycle Bin - do both show up .. they should
    empty Recycle Bin - does the icon change? immediately?
    don't open Recycle Bin, just wait.
    If you get impatient (give Windows a fair chance to 'catch up' 30 minutes?), try signing out and then back in to force an update of the icon.

    Please post your results, either if the old icon resolved the issue or if it is a timing issue.

    Thanks,

    Bill

    My files are not going in Recycle Bin

    This problem is fixed now.

    I don't exactly know the solution but I used two Tune-up and Utility
    apps,

    • CCleaner
    • IOBit's Advance System Care 10

    Just scanned for problems and junk and applied the suggested fixes. After that the problem is gone.
