How to Clean a Folder in the Recycle Bin

There can be cases when F-Secure Anti-Virus detects infected files inside the Recycle Bin folders. These folders are used to store deleted files. Their location usually is:

  • C:\Recycled\
  • C:\Recycler\

Removing the Infection

To remove the infected files inside these folders you need to empty the Recycle Bin.

To empty the Recycle Bin, do as follows:

  1. Double-click the Recycle Bin icon on your desktop.
  2. Select Empty Recycle Bin from the File menu.
  3. Click OK.

All files inside all Recycle Bin folders on all drives are removed. As these files are already meant for deletion, no real data is lost in the operation.
