    Funny. This doesn`t look like the Windows OS forum lol

    Nevermind I give in. :p

    Right click on your recycle bin, and select properties. Click on the local disk tab, and make sure the box that says "Do not move files to the recycle bin. Remove the files immediately when deleted" Is not ticked. Click apply/ok.

    Hopefully this will solve your problem.

    In future will you please try and post your questions in the appropriate forum.

    This will be more likely to get your questions answered. Thanks.

    Regards Howard :)
