Restore Recycle Bin!

Filed under: microsoft,technology — saraalag @ 11:14 am


I realised today that I hadn’t emptied my recycle bin in a looong time!!! So I tried to empty it but guess what – I couldn’t find it!!! I tried searching for it and couldn’t find anything!!! That’s when I remembered an old uni trick!

To create your missing recycle bin, Create a New folder on your desktop.  Then, name the new folder “Recycle Bin.{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}” and oooh la la, my recycle bin is create and now I can empty all my old deleted items!

Hope it helps!!!
