    A hidden system folder with that name always comes in my each and every drive. I have searched most of the results fro google, but nothing happens. :(

    what OS do you have coz Windows XP creates a folder "RECYCLER" to keep the deleted files, vista created "$RECYCLE.BIN" for the same purpose. I don`t know abt Windwows 7. Do you have win 7. If not then the probabaly reason may be due to virun attack.

    Your AV might have already deleted the virus and that folder might be the rmains for the virus attack. install "unlocker" and check if the folder is used by any services. if not just delete the folder.

    For ur query,
    He has given the correct reason.
    That totally harmless, stop messing with it.
    Windows reserves a space for deleted files. It is separate for each drive.
    To check it, Right click on "Recycle Bin" icon on desktop, and click "Properties".
    U'll get to see the drive names as tabs and the amount of space they are using.

    thanks buddy for your comment. Actually i couldn`t understand what is the exact name of the folder coz he wrote as "$RECYCLE.BIN$" but that folder is not created by vista, coz vista creates $RECYCLE.BIN:razz::razz:
