I accidently deleted the Recycler Folder in C thinking that folder is infected using command prompt. Is it possible to restore back? Or is it ok for the window operation without that folder? My OS is XP home sp3
You'll find this folder at "[drive]:\RECYCLER" where "[drive]" is the letter of the drive. My C and E drives have this (D is my CD/DVD burner). If all else, you might be able to create a new folder with this name if it's oddly absent. Otherwise, you could try deleting some file (create a temporary TXT file or something first if needed) and see if the file is being permanently deleted (you'll see the notice and a disintegrating page icon if permanently deleting a file instead of a "send to recycle bin" notice and the recycle bin icon).
