[How To] – Fix – The Recycle Bin is Corrupted


How To – Fix – The Recycle Bin on D: is Corrupted Recycle bin is used to throw the system trash. What if one day recycle bin throws an error saying its corrupted.



  1. I started getting this error recently, it only comes up upon restarting my laptop (or turning it on after it had been shut down). I have to hold the power button to force quit at that point because it's totally unresponsive. I have never gotten this error when actually trying to interact with or empty the recycle bin while my computer has been on. I should add that I have a computer with a hard drive as well as an SSD drive, and I have slowly been working on moving things between drives and getting more applications saved on the hard drive due to it being much larger. I think maybe this has caused some errors, I've tried my best to do things properly but I don't know if it's having issues due to things being "in the wrong place," or what. May not be related but i thought it was worth mentioning. I just want to know why this is happening 🙁

  2. Q: I have a problem. I can empty my recycle bin but no matter how many times i empty my recycle bins, the files/folders inside the recycle bin will not empty. Do you know how to fix this issue?
