XP Pro Recycle oddity...

  1. My XP Pro recycle bin, automatically deletes everything.

    Yes, I checked the properties to ensure that the box for one-step deletion was unchecked, so it should act properly as an interim storage dump until called upon to completely delete.

    I have developed a work-around, though it is a little cumbersome: I can drag-and-drop directly to the bin from a list window and it will save the file or folder. Otherwise, it's gone.

    Any suggestions would be really appreciated.

    Thanks,

    This may help...?

    Thanks for the suggestions, Howard. They weren't really applicable to the anomaly I'm experiencing, and I do thank you for your kind assistance.

    Ok, let`s see if this helps at all. Go HERE and read the instructions at the top of the page. Scroll down the page to #64 and click in the righthand side column.
