    The Recycle Bin on D:\ is corrupted. Do you want to empty the Recycle


    Windows 101 Version 2004 (OS Build 19041.450)
    =========================================================================
    The Recycle Bin on D:\ is corrupted. Do you want to empty the Recycle Bin for this drive?

    My actions to cause that error:
    C: and D: are two partitions on one drive.
    I needed more space from the D: partition for drive C:
    I used AOMEI Partition Assistant Pro to resize the partitions.

    After rebooting my PC I couldn`t access Disk D:

    I searched for a fix and found this video which I followed Windows 7/8/10 - “You Do Not Have Permission To Access” Error Fix - YouTube
    (it basically shows how to fix security issues)

    I followed the tutorial and can now access the drive D: but when I click on a folder or file in the D: directory I get the following error:
    The Recycle Bin on D:\ is corrupted. Do you want to empty the Recycle Bin for this drive?

    I found this
    Fix: The Recycle Bin Is Corrupted In Windows 10 - 2019 and ran (rd /s /q D:\$Recycle.bin) and I get this error:

    Remove-Item : A positional parameter cannot be found that accepts argument '/q'.At line:1 char:1+ rd /s /q D:\$Recycle.bin+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : InvalidArgument: (:) [Remove-Item], ParameterBindingException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : PositionalParameterNotFound,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.RemoveItemCommand
    =========================================================================
    I then tried to reset the Recycle Bin via the Recycle Bin on the desktop. Nothing changed
    =========================================================================
    I then than sfc /scannow

    sfc /scannow results:

    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> sfc /scannowBeginning system scan. This process will take some time.Beginning verification phase of system scan.Verification 100% complete.Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.PS C:\WINDOWS\system32>
    =========================================================================

    Any help will be appreciated
    Thank you

    You need to run the command rd /s /q D:\$Recycle.bin in a Command Prompt, not Powershell.

    Hello GMS Group,

    Just to verify, did you run the command in an elevated command prompt?

    The elevated command prompt worked but now I have security issues in that directory.

    If that is for the $Recycle.bin, try running the command again to clear it.

    If not, then you may need to change the owner to "Administrators" or your account first for access rights, then try to change the permissions.

    Change Owner of File, Folder, Drive, or Registry Key in Windows 10
