For reasons I won't get into, I had to reimage my hard drive (which is my main C drive where Windows is installed). I did this using the Restore Image option in the Windows Recovery Console and did choose the option for the drive to be formated first. I used an image I had from 3 weeks ago. Once the process completed, however, and I booted back into Windows, I noticed that I had files in my Recycle Bin from the last couple of days. This has me stumped, as I don't understand how files I deleted prior to restoring my computer are still in my Recycle Bin? Is there a valid explanation, or did I just not restore my image properly?

It all depends on how many other hard drives or accessible partitions you have.
Bear in mind that the Windows Desktop has just one Recycle Bin containing files deleted from all accessible drives & partitions

Do you have another physical hard drive installed (or another accessible partition on your system drive)?


Yes, I do. Thanks for the reply!! It was driving me crazy.
