    Hi ,

    Each drive on Windows has a hidden and protected system folder called as $Recycle.bin. It seems your F drive's Recycle Bin gets corrupted, please try to reset Recycle Bin with the following command:

    rd /s /q F:\$Recycle.bin  
    

    This ‘rd’ command will reset the $Recycle.bin folder which is present on the F drive.

    Best regards,

    Candy
