I accidentally deleted an mkv file.  When I went to go to the recycle bin to undelete it, it wasn't in there.  I thought to myself,"Maybe I didn't delete it," so I deleted another file (word file) this time and that file also is not showing up in my recycle bin.  How do I make files show up in my recycle bin?  It was doing it before.

Right click on your recycle bin....and select Properties.

 

Under 'Settings for selected Location', is "dont move files to the recycle bin" Ticked/selected...?

If you want a good 3rd party "second chance," Resplendence's Undeluxe -- it creates a tiny text file pointer to every file deleted, which be recovered until said file is overwritten.

Also in properties....what is the space allocated for the recycle bin?    how much of that space is used right now ?

 

Do you have a defrag program set to run via the task manager that perhaps empties the recycle bin when it runs ?
