Perhaps the file(s) in the recycle bin are hidden files? This would explain why you can't see them.
Make sure that you can see hidden files.
- Oepn the Recycle Bin
- Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options
- Select the View tab
- Under the "Hidden files and folders" heading, select Show hidden files and folders
- Uncheck the Hide file extensions for known file types
- Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option
- Click Yes to confirm
- Click Apply
- Click OK
