Hello friends. I have a strange question.
While running my Disk Space program on my secondary hard drive, it showed me that I have a Recycle Bin on it, that has more than 30 gigs of garbage. But when I click on the icon to browse for it or to open it, it doesn't take me anywhere. So my question is, how do I access my D drive recycle bin?

Hi ExplodingMonkey :)

In order to see the $Recycle.Bin folder on a drive, you have to go in the Folder Options panel, under the View tab and then check Show hidden files, folders and drives, and uncheck Hide protected operating system files (recommended). There you should be able to access that folder. You can delete everything inside it, and you'll be able to gain back 32.9GB of space :)
