Recycle bin always contains 0 items RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a 2-day-old installation of Vista Home Premium with all updates.  Even though I have my Recycle bin size set to 3000 MB max (rather than the radio button that deletes files right away) my bin always says it contains 0 items.  I can "empty" it, which gives it the empty bin icon.  I can also put files into it, which gives it the full icon.  But there are no files listed when I double-click.  Any ideas?
