    I just used what seems to be a stupid piece of "optimisation" software. :mad: It filled my Recycle Bin with files which it decided should be deleted (with no warning) and this got rid of what was stored in there which I may have wanted to use again eg. to reinstall some application.

    I have mounted an image of my C: drive which I took previous to this fiasco with a view to restoring what was in my Recycle Bin at the time. I cannot find the Recycle Bin folder in the mounted image. Can anyone tell me where to find it please?

    Should be C:\RECYCLER

    Thanks.

    RECYCLER didn't show up when exploring the mounted image. Using TI and the restore files and folders option RECYCLER showed up. I chose to restore the full RECYCLER and although it appeared to be restoring files (for about 4 minutes) nothing has appeared in the Recycle Bin. God knows where they've gone then! :(

    I didn’t mount the image, I just “explored” it. I could not only see RECYCLER, but I could also see the individual files in it.

    Yes I could see the individual files when doing the restore but they had unregognisable names such as Dc251. I have just done a search of my current C: drive for Dc251 and it hasn't found anything.

    By the way I can't get RECYCLERS to show up using Explore.

    That's normally a hidden folder. I haven't checked, but you may need to have viewing of hidden and system files & folders enabled to see it when using the Explore feature.

    I just tried playing with that setting. With "Hide" selected I can't see the C:\RECYCLER folder on the HD, but it is still visible within the .tib file.
