    deleted a file from my external HDD and it appeared in the bin[9.7Mb] it
    won't empty and it won't restore.
    Problem is it won't let me empty recycle bin when other files are in
    there,I have to delete them with the mouse in blocks.
    File is called "New" and I believe it's part of a backup I made to the
    external HDD before cancelling it half way through.
    Any ideas?thanks if you can

    thanks also I'll check it out although I think it may be sorted.
    I saved all the files from the Ex.HDD then formatted it.
    After reboot the problem was gone.Thanks again.
