[Windows 7 Fix] Deleting 1000+ Files in a Single Batch Deletes them Permanently and doesn’t Put them in Recycle Bin
Have you ever tried to delete more than 1000 files in a single batch in Windows 7? We suggest you to never try it otherwise you'll not be able to recover them from Recycle Bin as Windows 7 will not move those deleted files to Recycle Bin. Windows will delete the files permanently.
Actually its a bug in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. Deleting 1000+ files deletes them permanently and doesn't put them in Recycle Bin. Microsoft has confirmed this bug and has released a stability and reliability update KB980408 to fix the issue.
Along with the above mentioned issue, this update also fixes following issues:
- Windows Explorer crashes and then restarts when you access a third-party Control Panel item.
- You cannot connect to an instance of SQL Server Analysis Services from an application in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2 after you install Office Live Add-in or Windows Live ID Sign-in Assistant.
- Windows Explorer may stop responding for 30 seconds when a file or a directory is created or renamed after certain applications are installed.
- The Welcome screen (login screen) may be displayed for 30 seconds when you try to log on to a computer if you set the desktop background to a solid color.
