Recycle Bin - Lost Files

When I delete anything it just disappears - apparently from everywhere. It doesn't go via the recycle bin. I have Norton system Works and have tried with protection both on and off: still no files in recycle bin.
When I try and use unerase wizard I get a message to say "Unknown Value in Recycle Bin"

Is this a Windows or a Norton problem.

Even with norton disabled - still no files to recycle bin - just... gone !

Right cliok the bin, properties. Check that "Do not moves to recycle bin..." is not ticked.

Which version of Windows are you using, CDL?

ME. It's been fine in the past - I've just noticed this problem tonight !

What happens if you create a "rubbish" file and save it to the Desktop, then drag and drop into the bin?

You will gather that I am clutching at straws now.

Yep ! I tried that one too and then did a search for it - nothing !
