depawl May 14, 2009 at 18:19:05 Specs: Windows XP Pro
This is a Dell Dimension running XP Pro. I have the recycle bin problem described elsewhere on this and other forums whereby deleted files do not go to the bin, but are directly deleted. I have fixed the problem temporarily by renaming the c:\recycler folder and then letting Windows create a new bin, then deleting the renamed folder. This lasts for a day or two then the problem returns. I'm looking for a more permanent fix short of reformatting. Any suggestions? Thanks.
depawl, Go to the link below and scroll down to line 64 (right column) and click on "Replace/Repair the Recycle Bin in Windows XP" to download a reg file fix. Save the REG File to your hard disk. Double click it and answer yes to the import prompt.
