Windows 7: Corrupted Recycle Bins

Corrupted Recycle Bins

Greetings!

I am running Windows 7 Pro on a new computer (purchased 6 months ago) and keep getting the following error...




I have numerous drives (1 SSD, 2 internal HDDs and 3 external HDDs), but only get this error on two of the drives. I had one of the drives before I purchased this commuter and I bought one after. I’ve tried reformatting both drives, but the error still persists.

The error pops up every time I try to empty or view the Recycle Bin.

The two drives that keep getting the error are identical (both Seagate 5TB Backup Plus USB 3). However when the problem started I had one of the Seagate drives and a 3TB Western Digital My Backup Plus and was getting the error on both of those drives.

Any ideas on what’s causing this and how to fix it?

Thanks in advance!

Brian

It would be helpful for others if you posted exactly what error you are getting.

Yes, there is a system for adding images to the post, if you can post a screenshot of the error, then we can do something. If you are using the old iPhone Win 7 forums app, you can't do this.

We have no idea which partitions in HDD &or SSD you are referring to.

You cannot just delete any Recycle Bin from any partition.


To view what is inside the Recycle Bin, it is not necessary to go to that particular partition to open the Recycle Bin.

To delete or find where the file you have accidentally deleted.

Go to the Desktop --> Open the Recycle Bin <-- This is the Master, and proper way to open.

When it open, the deleted files will be seen here, and include the drive letter /partition, if you select another.

Recycle Bin is always re-created if you delete it, by the system.

So do leave Recycle Bins in all the partitions alone and do not do anything.

Edit:

Hi Eric3742
I see we posted on top of each other with the same idea.
To make things easier for Kazper I will sit back and watch.

I reckon that you can. See:

$RECYCLE.BIN folder?
