$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.

Delete File In System Volume Information

I had a hardware failure last week, which resulted in a new installation of windows 7. However i'm left with a 220gb file in system volume information on a storage drive.

I'd like to delete it, but i don't have permission, nor do i seem to be able to give myself permission to do it.

It's likely the result of a previous backup - however i have subsequently changed my backup procedure and i'm absolutely sure that this does not contain any data that i would like preserved.

Given that it's such a large file, i want it gone.

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?

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?

Information On An Operating System

What is windows automotive vs windows ce.

Is windows automotive a development platform built ontop of ce?
Is windows automotive a os all to itself but built on ce?

Pioneer's avic z110bt usb can only read up to 16 gigs of memory, except the ipod which it will read unlimited amounts of data. Is this a hardware issue with the unit? None of their previous units had this problem and this is their brand new flagship model. This system recently switched to the windows automotive 5. 5 os, all other models used windows ce. Is there anything about windows automotive that could explain this?

Striping Existing System Volume / Disk Drive

I'm just wondering can i convert my current single os disk to be striped in windows 7? I'd like to get a bit of extra hdd performance but i don't want to have to reinstall windows. So i'm wondering if you can do this on a live system disk.

My board has some hardware raid support but i think that'll wipe the disks if i try and make a raid with them. I don't think the hardware raid performance on these consumer mother boards is that great anyway so a software raid will be fine if i can do it.

Usb Flash Drive Error - Volume Does Not Contain Recognized File System

I plugged in my usb flash drive into a computer using windows 7. It always prompts me to scan and fix or cancel. I canceled every time, but i got annoyed with it popping up every time, so i told it to scan and fix. A loading screen came up so i patiently waited. After completion it asks to format my usb flash drive. I can't format it though because i have homework files and all my other personal files on there. So i canceled the format, but every time i plug it into my computer it asks t format it. I even plugged it into a computer running on windows xp and it wanted to format it.

When i try to run it without formatting it it says, "e: is not accessible. The volume does not contain a recognized file system. Please make sure that all required file system drivers are loaded and that the volume is not corrupted. " My question is, what did windows 7 do to my flash drive and how do i recover my data?

No Memory In Volume D: When Trying To Install

. I have a gateway. I don't know much about computers, but it's a quad core, has windows 7, 1tb hard drive, 8 gigs of ram. Something says "dx4300 - 01h" if that is relevant. Earlier today, i tried to install softimage modtool for practice in the 3d industry, so i went to  #this link and downloaded it# . So it was all going good, but once it actually started to install , this happened. http://i757. Photobucket.com/albums/xx215/mrfluffbutt/other/untitled.png

That's a link to a screen cap i took of the error, as well. So i had my friend try and help. I have disabled my dvd/cd drive, named. Hl- dt - st bddvd ch10f ata device. I have installed vcredist_x86, (c+ 2008, c+ something or other) and it installed fine (the c+ update). But trying to instal x64 (2005), it also says my "volume d" is full, even with the dvd drive disabled.
 
How can i over come this one tiny error message, and still get softimage? Is it something with gateway? My certain dvd drive? I have not done anything to my computer lately, other than install photoshop.

Volume From One Program Not Working

I think i accidentally disabled the volume from one program because whenever i open up the program, it's no longer showing up under the "volume mixer" as an application. Every other program i open has it's volume working just fine and shows up under the volume mixer as always.

My question is how do i get the volume working from that one program again? I was fiddling around with some volume controls when my headphones weren't working (i finally realized i had them plugged into the wrong slot) and can't remember how i may have disabled the volume from the program. I've been searching all over the place for a solution, tried troubleshooting, and i can't find this issue (or a solution) listed anywhere.

Lost Volume Indicator

I recently upgraded from windows 7 home premium to windows 7 professional. Before the upgrade, i would see a volume indicator box that would pop-up in the middle of my screen whenever i would adjust the volume via the keyboard. However, after the upgrade, i've noticed that the volume indicator box no longer pops up when i adjust the volume. The sound on laptop works fine, but i was wondering how i could get this to reappear. I have a e525 model emachine.

Video Volume Problem

I just bought a new laptop and after playing with it for a day, i decided to watch the "getting started with windows 7" videos that came with my new laptop. This is my first new computer in 8 years and i figured something may have changed since the first windows xp came out. Well, even though the audio on my new computer worked great on my music and the games i have run, i can only hear the audio on these darn video instructions from microsoft if i hold my laptop up to my ear.

I have the volume on my computer maxed. When i am playing a gome or listening to music on my new laptop, my sister yells at me from the other room to please turn it down and i only have the volume turned up to mid range. What can i do to get this fixed so i can learn about my new computer?

Product Key Information

I have learnt that if i am purchasing the windows 7 edition (anyone from home premium), then i get two dvds for installation of windows including one product key - now, by two dvds, i mean to say that one dvd carry the 32 bit version of windows and other the 64 bit one ! So, i wish to ask that the product key used for activation is same for either 32 bit or 64 bit version of windows, or both version (32 bit and 64 bit) would require a separate product key. Of course, if i am only activating any of the one version at a time.

In short is the product key for version 32 bit & 64 bit is same or not ?

About The Performance Information And Tools

I have installed a windows 7 ultimate n x64 trial version, which doesn't contain windows media player 12, after all the drivers were installed i found out that the performance information and tools cannot work. When i click the rate button, a frame popped up and says, "the windows experience index for your system could not be computed. Cannot complete the requested assessment.

This system does not have the necessary multi-media support to run the requested assessment. " I wander whether it has something to do with the wmp12. But there is no relative options in windows features and i also cannot find any downloading site. I have installed other multi-media softwares like kmplayer, but it didn't work. Can you help me?
