Help with Corrupt Recycle Bin on Network message

Posted on 2011-10-13
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Hi There,

I''ve moved a network from a domain with an SBS 2003 server as DC, to a new domain with a Std 2008 server.

All of the clients transferred okay, with one exception.  When I log one of the pc's on to the new domain, every time I get messages along the lines of :

 Error Message Received
I think it has something to do with file replication on the old server.

The old server is now completely removed from the system.

Is there a way I can stop these messages coming up from the client PC?

    Have you tried CDM as Admin and then:

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

    Hi There,

    Thanks for your suggestion.  I had tried it already but tried it again.  No Success.

    I think the fact that the error message is pointing to a server address on a server that no longer exists suggests to me that maybe it's somewhere in the registry it's getting these from?

    All help gratefully appreciated & accepted!!

    Hi All,

    Got this solved myself.  Was about to wipe the pc when I said I'd have one last try...


    Their pro demo allowed me to change some "system file locations" one of which was the links to videos, documents etc - which were pointing to the old server.

    I'm NOT reccomdending this software (I don't know enough about it) but I'm delighted to have found it to sort this issue!!

    Thanks to all,
