Basically as the title says, whenever I delete a folder or files or whatever, it doesn't appear in the Recycle Bin first, it just...disappears. I have created numerous files and deliberately deleted them to see where they would go, and one thing's for sure, not the Recycle Bin. When I delete something and then right-click on the Recycle Bin, the option "Empty Recycle Bin" is grayed out as if I had never deleted anything in the first place.

Any help solving this Recycling problem would be much, much appreciated!

Hi, I would make sure that "Do not move files to recycling bin" is not checked in the recycling bin's properties. Right click on the recycling bin and pick properties:

Alright! That did the trick, thank you very much!

Also, do you know of a program or a trick that can help me recover lost files, I mistakenly deleted some important ones and I need them back!

Thanks

No, sorry, I don't. I can tell you that saving files and writing to the drive can cause those files to be unrecoverable so limit your hard drive use as much as possible until you find a way to recover your files.


Good luck :).
