    Hi Loungers,
    I right clicked an AVI file in an external hdd, dragged to desktop and selected option 'move here'. The AVI file was converted and burned to a dvd sucessfully. (dvd file saved to desktop) I dragged the 2 files to the recycle bin, opened to empty it, and only the dvd file showed. Where did the AVi file go????

    How much disk space are you allocating to the recycle bin? If the bin overflows, older file(s) get deleted to make room.

    Hi Peter, I never got a mail re your post, only found it when manually cleaning out my old post notifications. I usually empty my bin after putting in what I don't need so it should have ample space, still no idea why a file disappeared. What size do you suggest for my bin. C; drive is 45GB, D; drive is 103GB
