The Recycle Bin on I:\ is corrupted

Window 7 continually comes up with the recyle bin error even though I key in the suggested fix: rd /s /q I:\$Recycle.bin It does this on all of my windows 7 sytems 3 and comes back after fix. All sytems are up to date on the updates.

Usually happens when the permissions on those folders are charged. Usually I just use Shift + Del in Explorer on those folders and it clears the problem.

If it occurs too often for you the Recycle Bin can be turned off for that drive/partition. Right-click the Recycle Bin then click Properties.
