Hi All
And Merry Christmas!

I have a problem. I fitted a new Seagate 120GB 7200 MB cache hard drive and set it to boot with o/s as master and my old 80 GB to act as slave. All went well with Disk wizard except now my Recycle bin don't seem to be working. If I delete something, it goes straight to Byte heaven and now i don't have the oportunity to reinstall. Whats gone wrong?

Right click the bin and check the settings in Properties.

Done that. If i press 'empty recycle bin' it asks me weather i want to permanently delete the 46 items? I can't see them!!

try restarting windows and then have a look in the bin.
