Files deleted from the Recycle Bin don't show in Recuva in Recuva Bug Reporting Posted December 23, 2019 · Edited December 23, 2019 by foto Only several deleted files have a path of C:\$Recycle.Bin and they're all many years old. Other than them there's no $I or $R prefixed files. Recuva simply isn't showing any later activity. There are no recently recycled files. If you delete a file to your recycle bin, and then empty the recycle bin, are you able to find the file using Recuva?
