Recycle Bin Folder On External Hard Drive

I received an external hard drive with data for processing. One of the folders on the hard drive is named $recycle. Bin properties of the folder show that the folder contains 56 files, but i can't see them. It also appear to display files that in my recycle bin on c drive. I tired to remove hidden attribute from the folder with no success. I also tried method described in the following article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/326549  and received "not setting hidden file" message.
I have windows xp professional version 2002 service pack 2.

Please kindly advise how i can access files in the $recycle. Bin folder.

Recycle Bin

I'm running win7 ultimate and made an error, i attempted to restore a folder from the recycling bin. The problem is that i already had a folder on the desktop with the same name that i created after i deleted the first one. The folder on the desktop is intact but i seem to have lost the one from the recycling bin. I tried a system restore to the day before but it fails telling me it has a problem accessing a file. Is there any way to recover the missing folder or where might it be hiding?

Recycle Bin Problem

I am experiencing recycle bin problems with windows 7 professional. Right-clicking on the desktop recycle bin icon hangs windows explorer, forcing me to restart the program.

All right-click capability on desktop icons is also gone. Left-clicking on the recycle bin con lets me access the contents of the recycle bin, but clicking on "empty the recycle bin" just causes the recycle bin to hang, forcing a restart.

Supposedly there is a way to reset the recycle bin with the command line sequence "rd /s / q c:$recycle. Bin, " but i cannot right-click to create an elevated command prompt.

Any ideas on how i can get a fully-functional recycle bin back".

Recycle Bin Properties

On the general tab, the settings for selected location are grayed out, so i can't change them. And by default my single local disk (c:) is set to "don't move files to the recycle bin. Remove files immediately when deleted. "I can see the maximum size was set at 17286, but i can't change the recycle bin to actually use that location.

I can find the c:/$recyclebin, and note that the folder is set to "read only". And even if i remove the read only attribute and have it applied to all of the contents, the next time i look at it i find that it is still read only. Any way to re-enable the recycle bin?

Tab For Recycle Bin

Can't see files in he recycle bin from drives other than c:all files deleted from the root drive c: can be seen in the recycle bin. Having multiple drives (local and networks), if you delete a file it goes to the recycle bin, but you can 't see. Steps taken. I can see all of my drives' recycle bin when i change view setting to show hidden files. What i can't do - not sure i should be able to do - is change the attribute settings on the recycle bin's to deselected hide file. Maybe that is what's missing. Any suggestions?

Pin Recycle Bin To Taskbar

Ok, so i really don't like icons cluttering my desktop so i disabled the recycle bin but i want to have it on my taskbar, by my programs. It wouldn't let me pin it to the taskbar, so i made a toolbar with a link to recycle bin and it work ok, but here's the thing, it looks ok as a small icon, but when i set it to be a large icon to match my programs it stretches the task bar to be a little taller. This is really annoying me. Is there a way to make it the same as my other icons with out taking up more space with the task bar? It doesn't make sense.microsoft should do something about this.

Items In Recycle Bin Invisible

I've got 3 systems running on windows 7 (64-bits), but one of them has a malfunctioning recycle bin. When i delete an item or folder, it does not appear in the bin, while the bin itself has a certain size and appears to be filled somehow. I cannot restore the deleted items either, but i can empty the bin.

I've already tried to delete/hide the recycle bin from the desktop and i've checked its properties several times, but i can't find out how to fix it. This problem was present from the very beginning, even before i had installed other applications.

Recycle Bin Access Denied

I have created an "e" partition on my new win 7 computer. Everything is fine until i try to delete any file from this partition. Whenever i delete a file from here, i get the following message:

Recycle bin access denied
[Filename] can't be moved to the recycle bin.
Do you want to permanently delete it?

I can delete the item permanently, but i would rather use the recycle bin. This does not occur anywhere else but in the "e" partition. I have no problem deleting to the recycle bin or emptying it. Can anyone suggest a fix?

Unable To Empty Recycle Bin

I have been having problems with deleting files that were auto recovery or compatible files from previous software versions that i have tried to delete from my computer (one is an autocad file and the other is an excel file). I can delete them from my documents folder and they end up in the recycle bin, however, when i try to empty my recycle bin it will attempt to delete them, but never accomplishes the task. I have allowed it to run for hours, with the message "deleting 1 item (4. 62 mb) from recycle bin. Discovered 0 items (0 bytes per second)".

I have also tried restoring them unsuccessfully. I have also tried deleting the files from the recycle bin instead of emptying it without any better results. Is there another way to empty the recycle bin or repair the issue that is causing the problem?

Files Disappearing From Recycle Bin

I have had this computer since christmas, and i love it. I have windows 7 and everything has worked perfectly up until i got connected to the internet in late april and so far it has been one problem after another. And that leads me to my latest frustration. Files that i have deleted to the recycle bin have disappeared. And i did not permanently delete then!So far i have not lost anything of major importance, except for some photos, but, that's not even a disaster.

However, i'm now afraid to delete anything, for fear that i would not be able to restore the item if i needed it. Fter losing a handful of files from the recycle bin, i did an experiment:  i purposely deleted some items/folders that were empty or contained stuff that i absolutely didn't need. I checked the recycle bin every day and for a while my deleted files were still in the recycle bin. Now, today. They're gone! 

The only thing i did out of the ordinary was download an update for adobe reader. That shouldn't have any affect on what happens to the contents of the recycle bin - or would it?So, i really would like to know why this is happening. Alice bb**** as of today, june 22/10, i have tried your suggestion azeez n. As well as others from related topics and still files disappear from recycle bin.

Now, here's a detailed account of events leading up to the files disappearing from the bin, all from today. Checked my email. Created 2 unimportant word files and then deleted them to the recycle bin. Bell program did a scheduled anti-virus scan.completed. All ok. Opened action center, recycle bin  empty! Windows defender recommended a scan. Normal. Created 3 more unimportant word files and deleted them to the recycle bin.

Went to favorites clicked on microsoft answers, recycle bin empty again!Created 2 more unimportant word files and deleted them to the recycle bin. Signed in to windows mail;  checked mail;  signed out. Selected microsoft answers from favorites; checked my threads; checked some related questions; signed out. Java update notice popped up on screen. Allowed it to download. Bell internet security notice popped up saying it had found and deleted a virus and recommended an immediate scan to see if there were any further infections.

Did deep scan at 98% complete. Recycle bin empty again!Scan completed. All ok. All these instances happened in one day, today. What is happening? As of june 25/10 the problem still exists. I am almost certain than it only occurs when i am online. I am trying to monitor this more closely and will post the outcome. Sometimes it seems as if the recycle bin is on a timer and just empties on queue. One day it seemed to empty about every hour.

One thing is for certain, i cannot use the recycle bin in it's present operating condition. Can i completely delete the bin and reinstall it?  If so, how? I am just a novice so please excuse me if this is a stupid question.

Files Are Not Moved To Recycle Bin

My hard disk has two partitions: one is for software and the other is for data (documents, pictures, etc. ) When i delete a file from the software partition, windows asks: "are you sure you want to move this file to the recycle bin?" But when i delete a file from the data partition, windows asks: "are you sure you want to permanently delete this file?" When i view the properties of my recycle bin, neither partition has a check mark in "don't move files to the recycle bin.

Remove files immediately when deleted. " It seems as though windows is treating my data partition as a removable drive or a network drive, where files are not moved to the recycle bin on deletion. How do i get windows 7 to move files from my data partition to the recycle bin when deleted?

$recycle.bin & System Volume Information

After installing window updates, in all the logical drives $recycle. Bin and system volume information folders appeared. Since both are system files so i didn't delete them and i tried to hide them but the hide option was unaccessible. Other window's folder which are by default hidden appears in all drives. The hidden option in properties are also blocked.
It seem that each drive contains lots of folder.

Help me, so i again make them hidden, because some times it might pe possible that it is being deleted.

Restored Files From Recycle Bin Are Missing

New computer, ended up with a lot of duplicate files under my itunes library (don't worry, this is not an itunes question!) But they weren't really dupes, they were the same song showing up twice (same path and everything). So, i did a test run on one set (2 of the same song) and deleted them to the recycle bin. Of course, only one song truly was deleted and i restored it and added it back to itunes without issue. (I had to do a search for the song but i found it easily and it was a breeze to add back to itunes).

So, i brilliantly selected all the offending dupes and put them in the recycle bin. I restored them all and now when i do a search, i find nothing. I know what songs to search for and they aren't anywhere on my hard drive. I'm aware that what i did probably (or obviously) wasn't the right thing to do but too late for that now. Any ideas on where the files could have gone and how to get them back?

Msasn1.dll File Corrupt, Invalid, Changed, Broken

The following error appears in my event log over 20, 000 times in the last 7 days. I assume something is seriously wrong? This .dll file seems to have something to do with security? Code integrity determined that the page hashes of an image file are not valid. The file could be improperly signed without page hashes or corrupt due to unauthorized modification. The invalid hashes could indicate a potential disk device error.

File name: deviceharddiskvolume1windowssystem32msasn1.dll

Backup Fails Due To Corrupt C: Drive

Recently backup failed claiming a corrupted c: drive prevented some user files from being copied. On startup disc check is run automatically and reports a fault due to recently installed/upgraded software application and states that the solution is to restore to an earlier point. This fails on a series of restore points citing corrupt c: as the problem. (Some loop huh!)Regcure has been run and sped things up (a lot!) But not resolved the issue.

Windows 7 family premium is being run as an upgrade from the originally installed vista. Ny ideas please? I really don't want to reboot and start again if i can help it, especially as its an upgrade not original installation. (Most of me wants to go back to xp if i must stay on windows!).

Error 1335 - File Corrupt

I recently installed windows 7 on my new custom built machine about a week ago. I came across a problem when i tried to install a game [crysis] the error occurred when the installation began to copy the files and install the game. This particular game is using . Cab files to install the software. I receive an error at the beginning of the installation, "error 1335 - file . Is corrupt etc. The file is there and working. I tried to install other software such as photoshop and various other games. Fter searching the net i believe the problem is directed at the windows installer.

Another solution i have found is that it could be down to the ram. I ran a memory diagnostic which did find a problem. I wish to know whether there is an actual solution to fix the problem or if i will have to buy another ram. Methods i have tried;

1. Using msiexec /unregister and a couple other commands but am unsure if they did anything. 2. Tried to install the software off the hard drive 3. Ran a registry cleaner, disk clean up and defrag. They are the methods i can remember off the top of my head. Ny guidance or possible fixes would be greatly appreciated.

Random Corrupt Login Error

Occasionally and more frequently, login will not work properly. I am a genuine 64-bit windows 7 user, and i love the system, but unfortunately i have been running into a recurring problem. I'm sorry that this does not have any specific error messages (i didn't think ahead, and it's not happening now), but these are the symptoms:

- On boot, i get to the login screen just fine, i enter my credentials.

- It says welcome, and then something like "loading your desktop".

- It says something about a corrupted login, then puts me into either:

- A) some weird half-breed of windows 95 and 7, where icons still resemble windows 7, but the taskbar and explorers are grey

- B) this last time, i was logged into a temporary account

- Edit: when i shut down, there is some weird audio feedback

- From then on, if try to log in, an error message about login or profile data not found.

- I usually just restore to an earlier image, and it will work fine.

Unfortunately, this has become more frequent, and i'm wondering what is the culprit. If it is impossible to grasp the situation without further information, i will try to get it. Past searches suggested it was something about the registry.

Error Codes & Corrupt Files

I am having problems with installing updates and software onto my laptop: -

Windows update, i get error code 80200053, microsoft security essentials updates, i get error code 0x80240022 (this is a new install but haven't been able to run as unable to update with any definitions) windows live messenger and mail installation, i get error code hr:0x8007000d

I restored my laptop to factory default but the problem hasn't been fixed. I am still having the same problems but also, i am unable to download programs like java or avg (before i tried mse), i get messages either relating to corrupt files or unknown publishers/certificates. I have been having these problems for over a week now, in fact both my laptop and my partners desktop are having the same problems.

Having spent hours searching these forums, i found another user who appears to be having the same problems as me and followed the solution provided i.e. Disk cleanup; sfc.exe and then checkdisk but the problems haven't been resolved. The log file from the sfc.exe suggested that some corrupted files couldn't be repaired and i have looked at the results but to be honest i haven't got a clue what to do about this. The checkdisk result came back clean though.

We have managed to obtain a copy of avg from a cd and run a full scan on both the laptop and desktop and no virus' were detected. The only items listed were tracking cookies which have been deleted or repaired and 2 items on my laptop advising broken digital certificates.

Can you please help me with this, i don't know what else to do to fix this problem?

Product Key Invalid After Installing New Drive

After discovering that my current hard drive was damaged, yet still functional, i decided to buy a new drive. After removing the old drive and installing the new drive, i next went to install my copy of windows 7 home premium. When i went to authenticate the cd-key, i received a 'not valid key' error. I double and triple checked the key that i received in my email when i purchased my copy of windows 7 from a student discount from microsoft. I feel that i would need to deactivate it off of the original drive before i install it on the new one, but i'm not sure as to how i would do so.

Driver Is Missing Or Corrupt Error Code 39

I installed my external disk drive to my new mini hp laptop, i installed a number of programs. I later performed a system restore to factory settings due to multiple, alike programs that were not necessary. I then set up my computer for a second time. This time when i was installing my software for my printer, which worked previously and i performed printing tasks, something happened and i have have no idea what. My disk device will no longer work. It tries to install, but fails.

The usb mass storage device works, but not the usb 2. 0 dvd-rom. I even plugged it to my desktop to try it there, and it worked the first time, now when i try it nothing happens, the computer doesn't even recognize it. I keep getting prompted to buy driver cure and driver fixers but i don't want to pay 30 - 50 dollars when i already paid for the device.
