    Recycle bin will not empty

    I used a file synchronizer to get rid of a bunch of images and the program sent all the small files to the recycle bin. Anyway, there must be a thousand small file in my recycle bin that will not empty. The "empty recycle bin" begins the process by listing all the files, but it just keeps going in circles and will not empty.

    Solved. I needed to set windows explorer to show system files and then delete "$RECYCLE.BIN."
