What is $Recycle Bin

  rawprawn 10:30 14 Aug 2007

I have a folder on my external HD labled $Recycle Bin. If I look at it in Tree Size it shows that it has 25,673 MB, but if I explore it through Tree Size it shows this folder is empty. If I go to my external drive through My Computer, it doesn't show at all
Any Ideas??

I have a feeling it is "System Restore Files" for my external HD, in which case I could delete the folder and stop system restore on that drive.

It doesn't seem to be that, I just stopped Sys Restore on the external drive and rebooted. There was no change.

It's what it says on the tin, a recycle bin for the external drive. I deleted it and the 25gb disappeared and it re installed itself Empty.
