A friend of mine keeps getting an error, basically indicating a corrupted recyle bin on his I drive (external drive). It gives him the option of emptying the bin. But that doesn't fix anything. In fact, when he deletes something on his I drive, it does not go to his recycle bin. It is gone.
I plan to do the following:
delete the $recycle.bin drive from his main C: drive and the I: drive. Then reboot the computer. I figure Windows will then rebuild his recycle bin. Two questions:
1) Is this likely to work? I hate/fear working with system files. I would do it with my computer, but I sure don't want to mess up his
2) Can I just delete the recycle.bin from his I drive? If we reboot, will it get rebuilt?
(I realize deleting the recycle.bin deletes anything in it. That is not a problem
