IMPORTANT: The following procedure permanently deletes all files and folders which are already in the Recycle Bin (from all user accounts in the system) and cannot be recovered.

Recycle Bin Corrupted - Cannot Delete File or Folder

1. Open an elevated Command Prompt by clicking Start > All Programs > Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and select Run as administrator.

2. Type the following command
rd /s /q C:\$Recycle.bin
press Enter:

This clears out the $Recycle.bin folder for C:\ drive. You may have to do this for each hard disk partition in your system, by changing C to the drive letter of the other drives.

3. Type exit to close the Command Prompt window.
