Sorry - I did not post my permissions - It looks like I gained Authenticated Users.

Just a little observation. Looks tidier than it was before. But unsure.

Alright -- I stuffed up - I just went to command prompt.

Not everyone is perfect.

I appreciate you assisting such a silly person as me

Thanks for the reply back -- you are a very patient person - I really do owe you.

I am now back to the recycle bin issue - but will go to the suggestion from another person of either renaming it

It has not finished scanning through the files yet - I do store a lot of information on the drive.

I am going to have to buy another hard form of storage I think.

I hope this looks alright.

I still am not able to move items to the external hard drive - I will do a clean boot.

I am happy with the operation at the moment.

I am most worried about "file access denied' - but I am thinking this will go.

Thank you

in elevated command prompt
Code:
rd /s /q  F:\$recycle.bin
Can you make files in root folder of F?
Can you delete files in root folder of F?

Can you do the same in any subfolder?

There is now no files in the recycle bin after I went back in - I call it at success.

You have taught a learner how to do something new.

I think you are magical.

I wish I had a million dollars to give to you. Just a refresh and my files are going.

One more thing to fix and that is it.

Thank you - no wonder some geeks get frustrated with me.

I think what fixed it was the last profile to get rid of it. I think it had some files that had a combination of letters and numbers in it anyway. No lose. All is working with no error messages.

Dear Kaktussoft,

Thank you for all the assistance that you gave me in my computer issue.

I have successfully removed some files to my external hard drive and taken some of the pressure of the size that was on it. I had far too many files on my desktop.

I am just enquiring as to whether or not you could assist me in the following:

1. The recycle bin -- I have a screen pic of prior to the error message - would the files that appear in the folder be imperative to the running of my computer or be required down the track. This is the recycle bin on my computer.
2. The temp files that I have on the screen pic - I am unsure of how they are created - either via Microsoft Windows or Norton.

Thank you so much - I think that you have quite a talent and a great teacher. I am so sorry that I put in the incorrect options in the command prompt.
