Here's the question! What is the C:Recycler folder and is there anyway you can remove the files contained in it?
And here's the answer for that one! C:/RECYCLER Folder
"C://RECYCLER is basically a location where a users deleted files are stored. After a user empties their Recycle Bin the data will stay in the RECYCLER location. This could be viewed as a kind of hidden back-up for deleted files (99.9% of users don't know about it) or back door to track a user if ever needed. I would imagine its purpose is in the event a user deleted a critical system file that needed to be recovered. Other contributors added:
How remove files in /Recycler
- This is the system protected folder that is used to store the files you delete until you want to completely delete.
The Recycler folder contains deleted files. On an external drive, the Recycler folder is not visible unless enabled (in Windows Explorer uncheck: tools/folder options/hide protect operating system files).
The files contained in the Recycler folder on an external drive can be deleted if, while the drive is mounted (connected) the user right clicks on the Recycle Bin on the DESKTOP (the main desktop, not the external drive) and selects "Empty Recycle Bin").
Note that the Recycler and the file contained therein will remain apparently unchanged. To confirm the deletion, right click the file within (the name will be a long string of letters and numbers) and select "properties". An empty file will be something like 8kb in size."
