Recycle Bin Being Bypassed On Deletion

Jan 16, 2014

I accidentally deleted an image I wanted to use online so went to the bin to retrieve it. It had been permanently deleted without passing through the bin. This is something that has only appeared (or disappeared) in the past day or so.

I run MS Defender, but there is notihng in settings.

I recovered it in Windows 8 manager file undelete.

Forget it, the bin has come back again???? Weird!

Enable Confirm Window On Deletion - Stop Start Menu From Switching To Menu View And Change Taskbar Transparency

Mar 30, 2014

I've recently purchased a new laptop with Windows 8.1 pre-installed. First question is how do i enable a confirm window to pop up when deleting something? I don't like how i can just hit delete and it moves it (Only to the recycle bin, but i'd rather it didn't).

Secondly how do i stop the start menu from switching to that Windows 8 menu view? I did originally change it so that when you click the start menu (Bottom left in) it would actually bring up the start menu, but it seems to have reverted. On top of this how do i change it so that pressing the Windows button brings up the start menu rather than the Windows 8 menu view thing?

Thirdly how do i enable file details when in Windows Explorer. So in Windows 7 when you select a file it would give the size, name, author, date last edited etc in the details pane. How do i get that now?

Finally, how do i change my task bars transparency?

How To Access EFI Partition And Its Contents

Oct 9, 2013

I'm trying to access the EFI partition and view certain files.

I have an EFI installed Windows 8 64 bit system on a MacBook Pro retina. (ie not BootCamp)

I have mounted the EFI partition in Command Prompt and it appears in Windows Explorer, however it refuses me access to it. Access denied.

How can I get access to its contents please?

My primary reason to access it is to view and copy my current BCD file. I suppose a method to copy that file might be a good enough work around, at a pinch.

Browsers/Mail :: Windows 8.1 - WLM Message Contents Disappear

Aug 18, 2014

Using Livemail in Windows 8.1 for no apparent reason the content of all messages in one or more storage folders will disappear. The message header is OK, but the contents of all messages in that particular folder are identical. It seems to occur only when I drag a new message from the inbox or sent box into the storage folder. And not every time.

I have tried restores the message contents. Clearly the WLM storage file is messed up - is there any way to restore or recover it?

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8.1 - Cannot Copy Folder Contents To Drive?

Aug 25, 2014

I found that my two Windows 8.1 laptops will not copy the entire contents of any folder to my Iomega network drive. Only the folder alone is copied and none of the sub-folders or individual files. I can copy individual files separately, but not the whole folder sub-folder, and files together. I have no problem doing this with my Windows 7 desktop PCs. My network drive is connected directly to my Apple Airport Base Station router.

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.

Desktop Freezes When Empty Recycle Bin

Dec 1, 2012

When I right click the Recycle Bin and click Empty Recycle Bin, the desktop freezes: the desktop become unclickable; if I click anywhere on the desktop, it just gives me a "ding" sound.

Everything else works fine, like icons on the dock is clickable, I can go to start and open an app etc.

The way I can empty the recycle bin is open the recycle bin and empty it within the folder.

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.

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.
