Sorry, I should have made myself more clear.
The situation is, there are not any files that are visible in the recycle bin in windows. However, if I look at the contents of the $Recycle.Bin folder (using Linux for example), there are actually loads of files there. I'm wondering if I can just do e.g.:
rm -rf $Recycle.Bin/*
and that it won't mess up my computer.
