      If you delete files which are bigger than the bin, they won’t be moved to it. You should get a warning message when you try to delete such files, though.

      If you are deleting Items on a network drive they won’t be moved to the recycle bin.

      Check in the folder options on the Recycle Bin folder and see if hidden or system files are not showing in the window.

      What exactly were the extensions on the file(s) that you deleted?

      Try checking do not move files to recycle bin. Save, exit and reboot. Then go back in and uncheck. See what happens.

      Cheers.

      OK, so just out of the blue it quits working? Was any software installed or uninstalled at this time? Same for hardware? Get hit by any viruses? Also, have you run virus/adware/spyware programs?
