My recycle bin appears to have something in it but when I open it its empty. Yet when I right click on it & choose delete , it shows 5 items in it. It ask if I'm sure? How can I be sure when I can't find the items?

This is probably a stupid question but, is your "Hide protected system files" unchecked and you are showing your hidden files and folders? Otherwise it sounds like a weird problem...

you know what... thats not stupid at all... I had to repair IE last night & that very well may be the problem. I'll check & see!

Folders was not hidden but extentions were. I corrected it but still no results in the recycle bin

are you viewing it from the desktop icon or windows explorer?

if the former - try the latter
(and the latte - it's v. good this morning ;) )

perhaps you can see more from C:\RECYCLED
with 'see all extensions' and 'view system files' etc enabled

I just rebooted.... no help
Now I am looking in the R B from windows explorer... still nothing shows... I had previously checked to see if it was hidden in Folder Options & corrected that... still no show of whats in the R Bin...
Deleting it is not a problem ... least I hope it isn't... but
why is it happening & how am I supposed to know what I am seleting?


well I found it in C:\RECYCLED
... thanks jbcalg
