Hello. Today I noticed that my computer is suddenly deleting files totally from my machine rather than sending them to the recycle bin. I've not changed any settings. It just started doing it!! How can I fix this?
Also, I wanted to add that my property settings for Recycle Bin are correct. It's like it's supposed to be. My file are supposed to go there, and it's supposed to confirm deletion. When deleting a file, it confirms the deletion, but it TOTALLY removes it rather than put it in the recycle bin. Thanks!
Well, I fixed it. I can't explain what happened for sure. But a trusty reboot seemed to do the trick. Things were in my recycle bin, they just weren't visable. I rebooted and there they were.
Man, I'm good... =)
Well, I followed your link and read about it. My removable disc box was UNchecked. However, now that you mention it, when I had this problem, my HD icon was like a "notepade" type icon. An icon w/ a C on it and what looked like some sort of "notepad." But it wasn't this way when I rebooted.
Also, I've noticed that it looks like this when I insert certain CD's in the Rom drive. I didn't really ever know what my HD's icon would change when doing this.
Mosaic1, it seems to be associate w/ three programs I've installed on my system. I'll rename it. But *I* never did this. Does it mean that certain disc's I install will readd the file again later though?
