I haven't had my MS Surface Pro 3 for long & I was just cleaning stuff on my xHD. I went to eject & had an extra selection:

Open Devices and Printers
Eject My Passport
- My Passport (E:)
- Eject CD Drive (D:) WD Unlocker

Why do I have 2 choices?

I restarted computed & when I opened there was a dialog box stating,

Recycle Bin
"The Recycle Bin on E:\ is corrupted. Do you want to empty the Recycle Bin for this drive?"

If my drive wasn't corrupted before why is it stating that now?
Could I have opened a bad file?
Moved a file inappropriately?
Ideas?

I'm scared to say "yes" & lose important information.

I believe the WD passport drives create a virtual CD drive for the software included on the drive. I disabled the virtual drive in Device Manager because it was giving me fits when doing system image backups to the drive. Try disabling D: in Device Manager.

What does disabling Drive D have to do with Drive E?

WD software creates a virtual CD drive. On letter is the virtual drive and the other is the actual letter assigned to the WD drive. I am not sure disabling the virtual CD will solve your problem but I personally did it because it was giving my imaging software problems.

If the recycle bin is still corrupted see this page. Make sure you are typing the command correctly or you could be deleting files that you don't want deleted. Substitute E: for C: in the command.
