    I have no idea where it went LOL.

    I have searched for files conatining recycle and for folders named recycler.

    I need to find it before my windows washer empties it in the morning. Can someone post the path for me???

    OK, I tried that and it didn't seem to help. I am fnding that this seems to be a common problem.

    I am just wondering if the folder is gone, where does the stuff go that is supposed to be in there??

    Darn strange if you ask me LOL. But thanks for the link

    Nope, the entire folder was gone........ I guess that means anything I deleted was actually deleted.

    I did some searching around and found that I was able to recreate a recycle file using tweakUI.

    So far so good, but dammit I spent all night looking for something that wasn't there. And that means that file I needed so badly is gone too :(

    Oh well, live and learn.
