Hello,

These folders exists in subfolders on my NAS (and the nas has is own recycle bin). It's in my documents folder (e:\data\&RECYCLE.BIN) and in my download folder (n:\downloads\$RECYCLE.BIN). When I remove them manually they return after deleting a file. In the properties of the recycle bin I exclude the specified folders (so files will be deleted directly), bus this doesn't work.

Wat can I do?

If you have your folder options set to show hidden files you will see a number of $Recycle.bin files. You don't delete them.This is normal and, yes, they will be created if you delete them.. They are all tied to the Main Recycle Bin folder on your desktop.
