recycle bin corrupt

  nelie 19:28 10 Jun 2008

using vista ultimate, i keep getting a pop up saying that the recycle bin on my 2nd HD(F) is corrupt. it wont let me empty it as it says i need permission (I am the administrator).

i tried to delete the folder %Recycle.bin but this just hangs while 'calculating remaining time'.

it does the same thing in safe mode too.

any suggestions welcomed. thanks n

Have you tried restoring the folder? what you want to remove from the recycle bin

mfletch - theres nothing in it - but i still get the pop up saying its corrupt.

fruit bat - tried everything there relating to this and still nothing.

when i look at the properties for the recycle bin it lists the F drive first. does this matter. is it possible the bin on the desktop is pointing to the f drive bin not the c drive?
