The recycle bin has ceased to work in D drive, and only D drive. The six pseudo drives which point to various directories on D drive still work with their seperate recycle bins. If I look at the recycle bin properties, all of the drives except D drive are listed as tabs.
D drive itself still has a hidden recycle bin directory in its root, which acts like a recycle bin (right click shows the context menu for a recycle bin) except for the fact that if you drag/drop a file on it, the file is deleted without going to the recycle bin.
Norton System Check, Norton Disk Doctor, and Window Scandisk didn't find any faults with the drive.
According to Windows I'm currently connected at 115,200 bps. I find that a tad difficult to believe...
Deleted the hidden recycle bin directory on D drive and rebooted. Windows recreated the recycle bin folder the next time I deleted a file on D drive, and the recycle bin began operating as normal.
Of course, now I'm connected at 24,000 bps
