Windows 7: Recycle Bin - Nothing in it

Recycle Bin - Nothing in it

There is nothing ever in my recycle bin, and yes I have the option set to put deleted files into the recycle bin, unless I do a Shift + Delete.

I'll also mention that my settings never hold from reboot to reboot....ex: I set IE to open full screen, and then reboot, and it does not open in full screen. This is the same for many other settings. What am I missing? Is this related to the recycle bin problem?

Thank you in advance for your comments.

jato,
That aforementioned procedure works by deleting the recycle bin from the command line and letting Win 7 recreate same.

I'm interested in knowing how you managed to mess it up?

Seriously, your experiences will help us to help others.

Not really sure how, or if, I messed it up. I don't check the recycle bin that often, but I do remember checking in it for something I thought I deleted by mistake....and that was a week or 2 after I had an on-line session with Dell support.

I'm not saying they did this, because I truely don't know.

@Stormy13.....That did it. Thank you for the link. Recycle bin appears to be working like it is supposed to.

One more question: Where or how do I change how long the recycle bin holds deleted files?

Thanks again.
