Try logging off or rebooting if your trash appears to have something in it. (looks like paper in the trash bin)

Sometimes windows does this, nothing wrong with your PC, it's just plain microsoft!

How to Recover Files Deleted From Windows Recycle Bin or With Shift + Del


See how to recover the files deleted from Windows Recycle Bin or with Shift + Del. The Windows operating system places all deleted files into a special folder named Recycle Bin. If an important file was deleted by mistake, you can always find it there. However, the size of Recycle Bin is limited, and the system empties it as it becomes full. What is more, the files, deleted with Shift + Del or larger than the size allocated for Recycle Bin, are never sent to Recycle Bin.

Read how to recover files deleted from Windows Recycle Bin or with Shift + Del - https://hetmanrecovery.com/file_uneraser/hetman_uneraser.htm

If you faced such a problem, just follow our advice:
1. Make sure your file is not in the Recycle Bin and you don't have its backup copy left. Your Windows may have enabled some backup functions, such as file history, restore points, system image creation etc.

2. Use the link in the description of this video to download and install Hetman Uneraser. Remember that you have to start data recovery as soon as possible, because the work of the operating system is connected with the permanent process of creating new files on the system disk.

Now let us see in detail how you can use Hetman Uneraser to recover files after Windows Recycle Bin is emptied or after such files were deleted with Shift + Del.

To do it, let's reconstruct a situation when important files can be lost.

• There is a folder containing various files on disk D
• Delete it by pressing the key combination Shift + Del
• as you can see the folder containing files is deleted, and these files cannot be seen on the disk or in Recycle Bin

So how can you use Hetman Uneraser to recover files after Windows Recycle Bin is emptied or after such files were deleted with Shift + Del?

• Click on "Wizard"
• The File Recovery wizard opens, "Next"
• Select the drive where the accidentaly deleted files were stored. In my case, it is disk D, "Next"
• Leave the default checkbox "Normal scan," "Next".
• In this window you can only specify the necessary file types to speed up the process of analysis and data recovery. For example, I will check "Selected file types" - in my case they are archives, audio, video files and images. When you unfold the list, you can specify even more which file types should be searched. I will leave default settings and click "Next."
• In additional options, you can specify the date when the files were created, opened or modified, and the file size to make the search more exact. You can also choose "Deleted files only" and other options. I will leave the settings as they are and will check "Deleted files only" because in my case I deleted the files - which means they were not lost, for example, as a result of a hard disk failure. Next.
• Wait for the process to be complete.
• The files have been found. You can uncheck the files you don't need and leave only those which are necessary, "Next".
• Here, select "Save to hard disk" and specify the path where the files will be recovered to. Click "Recovery" and wait - it can take some time.
• Ready.

As you have just seen, the program did the job easily and quickly, and it took me almost no effort, thanks to the user-friendly interface and an easy-to-use recovery wizard.

That is all for now. Thanks for watching. I hope this video was useful for you. If you liked this video, click the Like button below and subscribe to our channel to see more. https://hetmanrecovery.com/file_uneraser/hetman_uneraser.htm

How do I remove deleted emails from the deleted box in windows 8.1?


Usually you 'right click on the 'deleted emails' heading. On the list that opens it includes 'Empty deleted Items folder' or similar wording.
You can just click on that to Delete. But you may want to keep some of the emails; on the list of deleted emails you can highlight the ones you want to get rid of, and leave those you want to keep.
They will not finally go until you empty your Recycle Bin

Windows Vista Ultimate: Recycle Bin


If you find that when your Recycle Bin does not refresh but shows the same icon, irrespective of whether it is empty or full, here are some trouble-shooting steps you can try. Hopefully, one of these 5, should help you. 1) Check if you have installed any Theme or an Icon Package, and see if uninstalling it makes the problem go away. if so then the problem is in the Theme or Package. Also try switching the theme to Windows Classic theme and them back to Vista Aero default. 2) Right-click Desktop > Personalize > Change desktop icons > Disable / Uncheck Recycle Bin. Then click Restore Defaults. Click OK. Reboot. Now using the same method Enable /Check Recycle Bin, then restore defaults. Click OK. Refresh Desktop. 3) In the 'Desktop Icons settings' Dialog Box, check on Recycle Bin.
Then click on the ‘Recycle Bin Empty’ icon.
Click on 'Change Icon' tab.
rom the new box which opens, select the icon that shows the 'Recycle Bin Full'.
Do the same for 'Recycle Bin Full' icon.
Change it to 'Recycle Bin Empty' icon.
Now click Apply.
Now check whether, when the Recycle Bin is full, the empty-icon show. And vice versa.
If it does, go back and again change back the icons, to what they should be, using the same procedure, mentioned above. 4) Use the Group Policy Object Editor.
Type gpedit.msc in Vista's Start Menu Search bar and hit enter.
User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Desktop > Remove Recycle Bin icon from desktop > Double click on it > Enable > Apply Reboot.
Next, follow the same above-mentioned steps. But this time instead of 'Enable' select 'Not Configured.
See if it helps. 5) Repair or Re-build the Icon Cache. For this the easiest way would be to download and use TuneUp Utilities or Stardocks Icon Packager. They are not freeware, but you can use the trial versions to get your job done.
