It happens to all files that I try to move out of the recycle bin.

How exactly do you move them out of the Recycle Bin (drag, Restore, ...)? Which drive is the recycled file on (look at the Original Location column)? Give us an example of one of the original file names. – Hand-E-Food Jul 29 '11 at 6:18
Can't repro this on about 5 different machines running Windows 7... Tell us what's different about your setup from a stock configuration. – Cody Gray Jul 29 '11 at 6:23
Oh yeah - TeraCopy. I just found that out – InquilineKea Jul 29 '11 at 8:11

It seems you must restore/undelete them through the system menus because the original names and locations are stored in a database. Dragging them out manually appears to be losing that information.

Interesting - you're right. I usually use TeraMove – InquilineKea Jul 29 '11 at 8:11
