Windows 7: Recycling bin problems.

Recycling bin problems.

Ok so this morning i started up my computer as i normally do, and then as soon as windows started up, it displayed a message reading: Recycling bin for drive C:\ is corrupted, would you like to empty it? Naturally i hit yes, but then the message appeared about 10 more times before it finally went away for good. I tried deleting stuff to the recycling bin now, but it only gives me the option of permanently deleting the files. Next up i tried the commend line trick for fixing it by inputting rd \s \q C:\$Recycle.bin into the commend line and then it said sorry cannot delete the recycling bin because it is not empty. Finally i tried to boot into safe mode and then after hanging on CHKPNP or something like that, it booted right back into normal windows. So i'm really confused right now, and any help you guys could give me would be great.

Have you tried using the Command Prompt and the command: sfc /scannow

System File Checker will check and attempt to repair any corrupted Windows files.

Hope this helps,

Recycling Bin is seemingly self-emptying
Of late, I find that if there is anything I have dropped in to my Recycle Bin and I log off, when I log back in again, the Recycle Bin is empty!! This odd behavior began quite recently and I've not found any reference to reversing the way it's getting handled. While others might be happy to have it...

External HDD keeps recycling
Hello all! I have 400GB external Seagate. I've checked the USB power options to see if this was an issue- no. They are disabled. I wonder if it isn't a time-out inherent in the drive itself? I don't want it to power down until I shut it off manually.

'view' keeps reverting to 'by tiles' in recycling bin.
this isn't so much a problem as just a curiosity. I'm running ShellFolderFix to correct the arrangement problem, and that is still working fine (the dimensions I want recycling bin to have remain the same when I click the desktop shortcut), but inexplicably, after working normally all day (view by...

Recycling old hard drives
After upgrading, I've found that I have 7 IDE hard drives ranging in size from 1 GB (!!!) to 200 GB. I'd like to get rid of them all. Is there a free reliable recylcing service out there. I've already wiped them clean (except for the 1 GB drive which won't spin up. It's from 1994).
