Adding recycle bin to external drive


Thread Starter
Sep 30, 2019
Thank you. I accessed properties by right clicking the desktop icon, I have now tried to access via the recycle bin folder in explorer, and that shows the information for all drives as you indicated. I selected the drive I want to recover files from and clicked apply but nothing happened, the same clicking OK. I went to the drive I had selected but no sign of a recycle bin – how do I proceed? The files I am trying to recover are ones that I can no longer find on the drive, so presumably have been accidentally deleted, so "deleting" to a special folder would not be the solution.

That is a tough situation. If you accidentally deleted them and haven't done much on the pc since you have a "fighting chance" to recover them using Recovery software.
Recuva is free and GetDataBack is not, but this is a trial version I am leading you to that is fully functional and if you see it can get the files back as it is better than Recuva, then if you know it works you can buy it if you want to.
