    it is hidden in yours, go thru windows explorer, go to tools at the top, click on it, go to folder options, click on it, go to view & you'll see hidden files, click on show all hidden file & click ok & all hidden files are now in the open including recycled folder

    Hey

    Double Click on Windows Explorer (or My Computer will do) Go to the Tools Menu, then scroll down to Folder Options. Now you should see a few tabs, General, View, File Types, Offine Files. Click on the 'View' tab.
    Now half way down yo should see 'Hidden Files and Folders' then two options. Select the Second one 'Show Hidden Files and Folders'
    Click on OK.

    There should be a folder called "RECYCLER" which will have a S-1-5-21etc folder in it, that is your actual recycle bin.

    Just double click on the folder. Now there is all the files thats in the Recycle Bin.

    Either from the File Menu, there should be Empty Recycle bin, or if you right click inside the right hand side, then select Empty Recycle Bin.

    in the open part of the harddrive at least it is in win98se, everything is alphabetical so you should see it under the "r". use file/folder find & see what comes up

    Hey....

    Actually...

    Double Click on Windows Explorer (or My Computer will do) Go to the Tools Menu, then scroll down to Folder Options. Now you should see a few tabs, General, View, File Types, Offine Files. Click on the 'View' tab.
    Now half way down yo should see Hide Protected operating system files (recommended) Select the Take the tick out of it.

    Now do you see RECYCLER, you should now, cause its a hidden system file.
