CCleaner hanging up


Recommended Posts

OK, when I run cleaner on CCleaner for "Windows" CCleaner gets hung up when cleaning the recycle bin on F: (a .VHD file) I have went to properties and empty the bin which had nothing in it. I also can't eject that drive. Does anyone know how to fix this issue?

OK, if anyone has the same issue the fix is:

1. Open a elevated command prompt.

2. In the elevated command prompt, type rd /s /q C:\$Recycle.bin and press Enter.

NOTE: For the other hard drive letters, substitute C: for the other hard drive letter instead. For example: rd /s /q E:\$Recycle.bin
