    Testing with a mounted Macrium image (with the box ticked for 'enable access to restricted folders'), in File Explorer it shows multiple recycle bins on the mounted drive , but every one of them will open to your C: drive's recycle bin, not to the mounted drive (F: in this example). You cannot use File Explorer to look in the ones on the image. You need to use another file manager, or use DIR /A:H in a command prompt (or DIR /A:H /S if you want to see the contents of all the sub-folders).

    Yes, I was aware of that. I have C: and D: and I keep the "Hide system files" unchecked because I was losing hard drive space and found out that hibernate had gotten activated and now I keep an eye on it - and yes I ran powercfg.exe -h off.

    My point was that File Explorer won't let you see the true contents of $Recycle.bin on any mounted images. It 'helpfully' redirects you to your own Recycle Bin on the C: drive. You must use something else, such as the command prompt, if you want to see what's really in any of the recycle bins on a mounted image.

    Perhaps it is a "feature"

    Yea, I probably should have not posted this because I don't think it is a real issue, and like so many things, it could have been a fluke and never happen again.

    It is fine to post it. Not sure how it could be a fluke.

    Don't know, but maybe Macrium failed to write the Recycle.bin from the image for some reason; it wouldn't be the first software glitch.

    Was the image you restored an image of the same partition you deleted the file from?

    When you look at the 'Recycle Bin' in File Explorer, you are actually seeing a composite view, made up from all your $recycle.bin folders across all your drives. When you restore a Macrium image to a partition it only changes that one partition's $recycle.bin, so only the files you deleted on that partition would be changed.

    The image was an image of the partition that I restored.
