Won't empty Recycle Bin

Recommended Posts

No matter how hard I try or even deleting CCLEANER and re-downloading it, the Recycle Bin will not empty and keeps on growing. It started out with 8 files (all jpg's) now it's up to 30. The Recycle Bin elsewhere in the computer says it's empty just not in CCLEANER.

I'm using Windows 8.1 and could not get my computer to recognize the command prompt rd /s /q C:\Recycle.bin. (Option One)

 

In option two, the procedure is for VISTA and it says it will re-create a Recycle Bin file automatically. Will it do the same for 8.1 and is the entire procedure for VISTA the same as for 8.1?

When you say it won't recognise it, what error message does it say?

 

Did you use an elevated cmd prompt?

 

Did you refresh the desktop afterwards?

 

Just copy and paste this...

 

RD /S /Q C:\$Recycle.bin

 

Both option one and option two should definitely work on Windows 8.1 (I have used it personally)
