Hello KiwiProbie,

 

Inside the $Recycle Bin in this case, you will notice that the long alpha numeric folders are the SID (Security Identifier s-1-5-18) that identifies each user on the computer. It would  mean that each user has their own Recycle Bin.  Essentially the Recycle Bin is a special folder.

 

I would leave those alone. Actually I thought those files were hidden, perhaps you have hidden files un-hid on your computer.

 

I'm curious if you open the recycle bin from the desktop do you see the same files listed ?

Hey,

 

Sorry for the wait I didn't get notified that I had a PM back.  I did unhide it yes, cause I know that microsoft has a useless time at this at the moment.  I wanted to make sure that all my stuff had gone.
