Can't see deleted files in Windows 7 recycle bin

I can't see deleted files in the recycle bin.  It looks empty, but the desktop icon is 'full' and it has the 'restore files' and 'emty' buttons available.  If i have the recycle bin open when i delete something i can see it appear in the bin.  but if i close the bin and reopen it the deleted item(s) are invisible.  How can I fix this?  Thanks for any help.

I ran into this same problem and contacted CodeMeter directly. Here is the solution and it worked on my Windows 7 Ultimate system:


And we got a solution.

You should switch the state of your CmStick from local disk to removable disk.

You can change this with our tool “Code Meter Disc Configuration”.

Start->All Programs->CodeMeter->Tools->Disc Configuration, then go to the rider “Option” and change the value “Disk Type”.


Last step is to unplug the CodeMeter and replug it in and it should work.
