If you cannot empty the Recycle Bin or delete a file or folder from there, your Recycle Bin is corrupted. This tutorial will show you how to reset your recycle bin.
Open the Start Menu >> In the search box, type cmd >> Right click cmd (at top) and click Run as administrator.
In the elevated command prompt, type rd /s /q C:\$Recycle.bin and press Enter.
Close command prompt window and right click an empty area of the desktop and click Refresh.
