Simple problem when items are deleted they get sent to the bin but do not show up in the folder....the desktop icon shows that there are items in it, and when you select 'empty recycle bin' it asks if you want to permanently delete these 'x' amount of files - but at no point can you see what items are in it or any details about them....help!

In the Recycle Bin 'View' drop-down menu, if you go to 'choose details' near the bottom there's a list of things to tick what you want shown.

I have same problem and think it may be something to do with windows washer or norton protected recycle bin, don't have an answer yet but it may give you a clue as to wot is causing the problem if you have either of these
