Deleted Files Don't Go To Recycle Bin In One Of The Drives

Jul 27, 2014

After seeing a couple files permanently delete at unseasonable moments, I now at least enabled deletion confirmation messages. The bug is with the HDD I use for storage, the SSD hosting the OS works according to the recycle bin settings. I tried the classic subterfuge of switching these settings back and forth for both drives, without success though. This is a new installation of 8.1 Pro for me and I think making deletion without confirmation the default behavior was bad move.

Files Automatically Getting Deleted From External HDD Found In Recycle Bin

May 8, 2013

This morning with a big surprise I found that a lot of files had been deleted from my external HDD

On the desktop I had a look in recycle bin and could notice it was empty.

So sad, I plugged the external HDD on USB port and had a look again in recycle bin, at my surprise many files were there, waiting to be deleted and I could restore them by chance.

I unplugged the extrenal HDD and plugged another one and noticed a file was present again in the recycle bin waiting to be deleted., then I unplugged the HHD and tried to cancel the famous file with no success, the only way was to plugged again the HDD.

So strange situation as the recycle bin icon does not look as it is full, so I don't know if this is a bug from Windows 8 or not but will take care in future as I never seen that problem with Windows 7.

Import Photos And Videos From HD Camcorder

Feb 23, 2013

I am importing photos and videos from CANON VIXIA HF 200 HD camcorder. When I choose "Date Taken" as the sort order for the folder, date is not detected at all. All the files are tagged with date under Dec 26, 1899. I have used the same SD card to import in a windows 7 PC, all the dates are detected correctly. This issue happens only with CANON camcorder. It works fine with a NIKON camera - Dates recognized correctly.

Does Windows 8 Include Sample Photos / Videos And Music

May 13, 2013

Prior versions of Windows included sample photos, videos and music files from Microsoft.

I have a new install of Windows 8 Home, 64 Bit OEM version and when I look in My Pictures, My Videos, and My Music these libraries are empty. In the past after installing Windows, I used these files to do a quick check to see that sound card and other parts of the system were working. I went to try that in Windows 8 and no files!

I do not know if they are there but in a new location, or if they are no longer included, or if something went wrong with the install, or something else.

I am also not finding any sample photos when I start up the Photo Tile App.

Change Default Folder (Import Photos And Videos) Metro App

Apr 7, 2014

I like the Metro app because it is the simplest to understand and I believe I do know *all* other ways to read SD card data into any folder I choose.

Autoplay has been properly selected. I put the SD card into the slot and immediately the files are read, but when they are selected and imported they end up in the default folder "Pictures." I really don't believe there is any way to change this folder if I insist on using the Metro app, but is there??

Can't Recover Any User Documents / Videos Or Music After Restore

Mar 3, 2014

Did an upgrade to WIN 8.1 and everything kept freezing up. Took a brand new 1T portable drive and copied the entire (or what I thought was the entire) C drive.

Got into the boot screen and did a system restore. WIN 8 works fine, but my portable hard drive copy does not contain any of my documents, videos or pictures.

Tried Recuva and Puran on the original internal hard drive and still can't find any of the missing documents.

Thumbnail Pictures Deleted - How To Restore

Jan 29, 2014

My problem is that all my thumbnails that would normally show as the actual picture in any file or folder including ones saved to the desktop have all been replaced with a windows generic mountain and sun cartoon. The only way I can see what any individual picture file is to physically click on it and open it up in a viewer. This is a royal pain to try to find any individual picture to say the least.

.I get a error message saying restore could not be completed...try choosing a different restore date.........I have tried them all.....same error message

Accounts :: Deleted USERS Folder - How To Restore

Jul 2, 2014

I'm using Win 8 with Win 7 Interface.

So basically the problem is that the computer is running on win 8 and the folder 'Users' located in C: was copied to disk D: and then deleted from disk C:.


Now when I go to 'start' there are no 'my music' 'my documents' etc, instead of that it shows '<No Text>' and doesn't open up. (Although when I scroll over the "<No Text>" (there are 3 different ones) I can see bars popping up 'Access letters and etc documents', 'View and organize pictures', 'Play music and other audio files'.)

I tried system restore 3 times to 3 different earlier restore points - nothing happened. How to fix this without having to reinstall OS?

Accounts :: Deleted Admin Account In Update - How To Restore

Jun 8, 2014

I only had one account on my Windows 8.1 Pro Update 1 x64 computer. Then I messed it up when I changed rights. Now the computer boots up and I can log in but as a user.

Most of the suggestions I read require admin rights which I no longer have. I can't create a new account or edit the built-in admin account but I keep getting the error 5.

So Should I try to boot in safe mode with DOS prompt and hopefully admin rights?

Would a system restore work? I do have recent restore points but will I be able to restore if I am not the administrator?

I am asking all of this because I am not in front of my computer at this moment... I had to leave on a business trip so I will attempt repairs when I get back home.

Worst case scenario will require me to start from scratch, which I am trying to avoid.

Setup Installation :: Restore Defaults Deleted Boot Priorities Completely

Dec 28, 2012

I bought a Windows 8 laptop, ASUS Q500A, and reformatted it with Windows 7.

I went into the BIOS and used "Restore Defaults" and now all Boot Option Priorities are deleted.

Each time I boot the laptop, it automatically goes to BIOS (or UEFI).

I tried inserting the Windows 7 disc so I can access Startup Repair or Command Prompt but it freezes before it could get anywhere even when I tried it with an external CD/DVD drive.

I cannot get the laptop to boot to the hard drive or CD drive at all,

how I can reset the boot option priorities so it will be boot to the hard drive again.

Windows 8 Corrupted Recycle Bin

Sep 24, 2013

I recently had an issue with ownership where I had to change back the ownership of my C: drive to Administrators and was able to fix that. However, I'm still getting an alert that I have a corrupted Recycle Bin. I tried to delete it, but it comes right back even in Safe Mode. I tried removing the directory with "rd /s /f C:$Recycle.bin", but it just tells me that the directory is not empty. There's this one folder with one r0OWNYK.dbx file inside the bin. How to remove it?

Recycle Bin Crashes System?

Apr 29, 2013

I had deleted some items and decided to restore them.

When I open the recycle bin, I can see the files for about 2 seconds and then it seems the system crashes and refreshes/restarts. As soon as it opens, the little blue circle is there spinning.

I tried pinning a Recycle Bin tile to the tile screen and it does the same thing, whether I am in desktop mode or tile screen.

I have tried clicking on "restore all files" quickly when the Recycle Bin is open, but nothing is operable.

I have rebooted, I have checked for updates, and cannot fix it as of yet.

Icons Disappearing When Clicked And Goes To Recycle Bin

Jul 3, 2014

Every time I start my computer and I click on an icon (on the desktop or in the Start menu), the icon disappears and this error message shows up about a dozen times:"Could not find this item. This is no longer in C:...Verify this item's location." And that things (ex- documents, my computer icon, movie, song) go to Recycle Bin. And when i select bunch of file by pressing CTRL+A, then it shows option for delete automatically. I am using ASUS K46 Series laptop with windows 8.

In my thinking, there might be problem regarding DEL key. I thought that because when i press power button of my laptop instantly boot menu comes ( which come only by pressing DEL key normally). But DEL key looks like normal like other key. There is no tapped or go inside of DEL key.

When Files Restored From Recycle Bin Not Go To Previous Location

Apr 4, 2014

I have a friend who was deleting downloads and accidentally deleted her documents folder as well (Folder was stored on a external portable hard drive). She went to the recycle bin and clicked the file and chose restore, it showed all positive signs and removed it from the recycle bin, but there is no trace of where it went. It is not anywhere on the external hard drive (which was connected when she did the restore from recycle bin). I tried searching everywhere and there is no sign of it, where it went? We tried downloading a free data recovery program, but it is still scanning and will take another 4 hours.

Maintenance :: Recycle Bin Permanently Deletes Regardless Of Settings?

Apr 11, 2014

In Windows 8.1 Pro Update 1 64-bit I am not given the option to move files to the Recycle Bin. Instead, when I delete a file I am asked "Are you sure you want to permanently delete this file?"In the Recycle Bin properties for each hard drive partition I have not selected "Don't move files to the Recycle Bin" and I have check-marked "Display delete confirmation dialog."

I can't remember precisely when this started to happen, but I did install Update 1 recently. I don't know if that matters.
