    Recycle Bin Being Bypassed on Deletion

    I accidently deleted an image I wanted to use online so went to the bin to retrieve it. It had been permanently deleted without passing through the bin. This is something that has only appeared (or disappeared) in the past day or so.

    I run MS Defender, but there is notihng in settings

    I recovered it in Windows 8 manager file undelete

    Forget it, the bin has come back again???? Weird!
