I have a duelboot system, win98SE on one partition and XP on the other. I have just noticed that the recycle bin is clearing when I boot from one Win to the other.
If I click on empty recycle bin, it pops a box up saying are you sure you want to delete these 16 items, in the other windows, it is 31 items, yet there are no files showing and it says 0 bytes.
Can anyone help please.
I have not set the files to delete without going to the bin as the files do show when first deleted.
