I have 15 computers with 2 HDD in, one with XP sp2 and the other with data on. There are 4 local users with their My Docs redirected to D:\'username'\My Documents.
When a user logs in they immediately get an error message saying "the recycle bin is corrupt , do you want to empty it?" Clicking Yes or No makes the error disappear, but this recurs at next login. I do not want to reinstall windows as they are very specifically setup, so a fix is really really necessary.

Is this the users recycle bin on D:? Is there also a recyle bin on C:?

Any ideas how to fix this? Thanks 4 any replies.
