    Empty Recycle Bin (XP Version1)

    I delete files, check the recycle bin and the bin is empty. Hmmm. Anyone know what's going on? Thanks.

    Right-click Recycle Bin icon on your desktop and from pop-up menu choose Properties. Click Global tab. Is "Do not move files to the Recycle Bin" checkbox checked?

    Re: Empty Recycle Bin (XP Version1)

    Interesting, I've had the same problem on various XP installations. I'm curious: do you have multiple partitions, and if so, have you changed the properties for Recycle Bin so that it tracks each drive separately? Although I'm a little hesitant to shout success, Service Pack 1 seems to have fixed it. Have you applied Service Pack 1?
