    The recycle bin does not show any deleted items--the space under name, location, date deleted, etc is entirely blank. When I right click and go to empty recycle bin, it confirms that there *are* files to be deleted. Any ideas? Thanks

    Make up a "dummy" file and delete it to the recycle bin. Then go and empty the recycle bin. See if that straightens it out.
