Failover Cluster Manager is showing a disk in C:\$Recycle.Bin

Hello,

Our Failover Cluster Manager is showing one of the disks with the path showing as C:\$Recycle.Bin\ instead of C:\ClusterStorage\

Also, our VM is working and can be moved between nodes, but the Cluster Manager MMC is showing the wrong information for one of it's disk.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Hello

Thank you for your question and reaching out. I can understand you are having issues related to disk showing in C:\$Recycle.Bin\


It can happened If the mount point path is C:\$Recycle.bin[guid], it is caused by replacing a SAN drive with another one at the same drive letter or mount point but with a different LUN. This confuses the recycle bin.

If it is the recycle.bin folder, make sure you have a backup of your data and delete the mount point folder under C:\recycle.bin. You might have to take ownership of the folder to be able to complete this task. If files are in use, take all cluster resources offline and try again.

If you suspect a corrupt mount point or drive, run chkdsk on ALL clustered drives

Thank you for your answer.

That Volume is not in the $Recycle.Bin Only the MCC for the Cluster Manager shows it in the $Recycle.Bin Nothing else indicates that it's in the $Recycle.Bin Everything is running fine. Still just wondering why the MCC shows it in the $Recycle.Bin Also, LUN numbers have not changed.

Thank you!
