Program is a steaming pile

It corrupted the recycle bins on my two main drives. What an incredible piece of garbage - run FAR away from this!

Yours is the first report of this so perhaps there was something else going on with your machine.

However, I'll pass your complaint onto the admins.

Here are a couple of articles which may help to resolve the problem, but first open a Command Prompt (Admin) or Powershell (Admin) and enter these cmds then check after the reboot.

dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

sfc /scannow

shutdown /r /t 00

Well - considering you are the only one in many years to report this issue, I'm gonna guess it's something to do with your system and likely a result of what brought you to use the software to begin with.

Resetting the recycle bin is easy and a common issue with windows.  Feel free to google it.

The easiest is :
Running command prompt as admin and entering 'rd /s /q D:\$Recycle.b' (assuming windows 10)

Hope you have a better day.
