  1. On the desktop click on Computer

  2. Click on Organize on the top left menu then Folder and Search Options and open the Folder Options Window

  3. Click on the View tab and check the Show hidden files, folders and drives click Apply and Ok. *This will display the hidden folder $Recycle.Bin when you click on your drive

  4. Locate and right click on the $Recycle.Bin folder and rename it to something else. Right click on corrupt bin and delete it.

    Must rename $Recycle.Bin before deleting or it may continue throwing errors like Denied access or when you think it is deleted you see its still in your drive.

  5. Refresh your desktop. You should now be able to use the recycle bin normally.
