    Corrupted Recycle Bin?


    Could anyone tell me why "mount" is listed here? It happens when I my USB External Hard Drive. I've tried clean installing Windows, DISM, SCF. Or is it reflecting my Recovery Partition? It remains stuck there as though it's still mounted. I've included a photo of what it looks like. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    As that partition does not has a drive letter it likely defaults to the name Mount or it is telling you to Mount it so it gets a letter. Since it has a name Windows didn't give it I imagine the partition ID / type may have also been changed.

    Assign it a drive letter and see if Mount changes to name BIOS_RVY.

    Then unassign.

    The BIOS_RVY partition is on the D drive and it's part of my MSI gaming laptop's factory reset functionality. I'm a little iffy about even messing with it, as it's caused me a lot of issues in the past, along with many other MSI users. It just seems like every time I connect my external hard drive after a clean install (which has nothing but backed up programs and games on it,) and then unmount it from the laptop, that appears and it remains that way.

    Makes sense, does not have drive letter so explorer doesn't see it.

    So, how exactly do I allocate it a drive letter and then remove it so that it disappears or is that not possible?

    If partition allows

    This is for change, you would use add.

    Change and Assign Drive Letter in Windows 10

    and remove

    Remove Drive Letter in Windows 10

    You say the Recycle Bin is corrupted. In what way other than showing this drive as mount if you go into properties. Is it not holding deleted files or when you permanently delete does the system error.
