I recently discovered the problem that after items were deleted the do not display in the recycle bin. My setting are set up so that they do. And if I click the "empty the recycle bin" it displays the usual message of if I am sure I want to delete the x amount of items. I have looked and made sure all hidden files were displayed in properties but it did not work. Can you help me?

This is for recycle bin not showing any deleted files.

Delete any file (just to make sure there's something in the bin).

Then, with the Recycle Bin CLOSED (do not open it), right click the Recycle Bin desktop icon, select:

Empty Recycle Bin, and when the Confirm File Delete dialog box comes up, click the OK button.

Then reboot your system.

So once this action is accomplished, the next time I delete something, if I open the recycly bin it will display what is like like normal? This is what I want to happen in case I would like to go back and restore the file.

This action repairs a corrupt recycle bin. Just delete something so that the recycle bin contains something (create something to delete if you need to). Carry out the described action and restart. This should return your recycle bin so that is shows the deleted items when you delete them.
