Moosetek13, I installed windows on a brand new HDD. My recycle bin shows as being full, but when I click on it, it says that it is empty. But when I ran the Disk Cleanup tool, it reported 700+ mb worth of files in the recycle bin. I just now deleted a temp file to the recycle bin...still doesn't show up, but the disk cleanup tool shows 702+ mb worth of files in there.
Doc, Windows 7 is my only OS. I have a USB external hard drive that I use for backups; otherwise, the SATA HDD is the only drive on my computer. I want to say that when I first installed Windows on Friday, the recycle bin was working right. But, yesterday and today, it hasn't worked, but I'm not real sure about that.
