Default Recycle Bin Weirdness

I was doing file operations and noticed a key folder had disappeared. Assuming I had deleted or move it, I tried to undo (I was in Directory Opus). No luck.

So I searched the recycle bin. No luck.

Then I used a recover program to see if it was deleted instead of moved to recycle bin. Not there.

Directory Opus has the ability to navigate to the recycle bin and view files there. I could not find my files there.

So I decided to search the entire drive for one of the file names I remembered, just in case it got moved to somewhere else on the drive. I used File Locator Pro. And I found the file. It was located in F:\$RECYCLE.BIN\, right where I was unable to find it before using other methods.

So I tried more test searches in File Locator Pro and could not zero in on the missing folder, only files in the folder. But I remembered the names of key subfolders and was able to find them. There might be more but I'm happy I was able to do this. Also, none of the files or folders copied out with weird recycle bin names on them. They appear to be as before.
