I'm trying to free up some space on the E: drive of a particular machine. In WinDirStat, I see
$RECYCLE.BIN there is taking up 10+ GB, so I'd like to empty it. Seems simple enough!
I can't seem to figure out how. In Windows Explorer, there's one "Recycle Bin", and it's on the Desktop, outside of any lettered drive, and the lettered drives don't show
$RECYCLE.BIN in them. The one Recycle Bin I do see shows as empty -- no files, zero bytes.
(The only answer I could find so far is something to do with permissions, but I even tried opening an Explorer window as administrator, and I still see nothing there.)
Any ideas? Thanks!
