    Recycle Bin Problem


    Suddenly my recycle bin shows only the latest 6 or 7 deletes, and nothing more. I used to have a whole list of deletes before: 40, 50, 60.....
    What have I screwed up?
    Any help appreciated in advance.

    Have you got storage sense turned on under settings system storage as that can delete files to free up space and that would do it

    @Samuria: NO, I do not have Storage Sense turned on, and the RB properties shows that I have some 230 GB of available space.

    Do you have it set to a custom size? If you do (see below) it will have deleted files once it reached that size. Also Space Available is the size of my drive, not how much space my recycle bin has (it's 5%-10% of that that is given to the recycle bin):

    No, just right clicked Recycle bin, Properties, and there it is.

    It's the GreyEve theme, which I tweaked a bit.

    You can find it here:
