My PC’s recycle bin empties itself every few hours. It is not set to permanently delete the files. I don’t have any 3rd party system clean programme. My concern is why does the Recycle Bin keep emptying and how do I stop it?
Many users face this issue if they have set a limit for Recycle Bin. In short, it means whenever the file size is larger than the limit set in your Recycle Bin Properties, it will automatically delete the files in Recycle Bin.
Step 1. First of all, right click on Recycle Bin and select Properties.
Step 2:- Now it will open a pop up. Here you can set the maximum limit. For files bigger than that it will prompt to delete them because of the set limit. And make sure you have checked the checkbox Display Delete Confirmation Dialogue.
Apply and it’s done.
Method 2: If the issue still persists, you may visit the official site of Microsoft. Click the link given below:-
