Windows 7: Not all Deleted items show up in Recycle Bin

Not all Deleted items show up in Recycle Bin

Windows 7-SP1

This is only happening on my internal data drive ( E: ), system drive ( C: ) and external drives ( F:, G & H: ) are OK.

If I delete up to 6 items in a single operation (folders, files or a mixture) the items show up in the recycle bin. But if its 36 then 30 items will not be in the recycle bin, and the 6 that are there are not the first or last 6. If its 80 items then 74 wont be in the recycle.bin etc, etc, If I delete 200 items in a single operation from the C: drive then all 200 will be in the recycle bin.

Weird. I tried creating a fresh $recycle.bin on E: (by removing it), that didn't fix it.

This drive also contains E:\RECYCLER\S-1-5-21-117609710-2025429265-682003330-1004 which I believe is the recycle bin contents. If I remove this directory will windows create a fresh one?

I ran chckdsk on the drive in mid-May no errors reported and SMART say its healthy, anyway its not a hardware issue.

As a quick experiment you could use sike command line utility to send files to the recycle bin and see if it acts any differently. The program is free. No nags, tracking or advertisements etc. on my site.

Edit: If you run sike in a command prompt with no params it shpws a usage dialog.

@MilesAhead - Thanks, but sadly same deal - delete 80 files from E: only 6 in the bin, delete the same 80 files from C: 80 in the bin.

I watched the recycle bin in explorer (I emptied it first) - I could see the 80 files pouring into the bin, but if they came from E: they were disappearing just as fast

Not sure whether to reformat the drive or reinstall windows - any opinions anyone?

Is drive/partition E a protected backup drive/partition?

Suggest you tell folks what you want a screen of, before telling them how to take a screen shot. I'm guessing you want disk management, see attachment

I anticipated your cloaked link would be to a thread about Disk Management.

If someone doesn't know how to take and post a screen shot, the chances are that they wont know where to find Disk Management

Hope you have a nice day too.

Do the files delete from the original location? Are the files non-descript enough that you can post an image of Windows Explorer with a sample of the files you're trying to delete? Perhaps you're not the "owner" of the files.

Do you have a dual boot system or another OS installed? Why is E: marked Active?

How much space is allocated in the recycle bin for each drive, and is this being exceeded.

Recycle does not show files to be deleted
If I delete files and then go to the recycle bin, I can not see any of the files. Therefore if I want to restore a particular file I can not. If I choose to empty the bin, I get I confirmation to delete the correct number of files, but they are not visible. Any suggestions?
