The error as seen in the attached image began appearing in multiple user accounts after I had done some system maintenance that included manually deleting the contents of many recycle bins.

The folder referenced in the error message is the location of my personal files.

This is within Windows Server 2008 R2.

To clarify, every affected user gets the same error syntax that makes reference to my personal folder for some reason.

PLease take a look here and test in user Troubleshooting Security Translation Issues

If after that the problem is solved to that particular user, you can do the same for the rest.

At the end of the page is you can see this:

I am receiving the following error: "The Recycle Bin on C:\ is corrupt or invalid. Do you want to empty the Recycle Bin for this drive?"

Cause: This is by design. For security reasons, each user who logs on to a Windows 2000 or Windows Server 2003 computer receives their own, user-specific Recycle Bin. The access control list (ACL) for each instance of the Recycle Bin can contain only one user-specific SID. When you migrate a user's profile using the Add option, the SID of the source domain user is added to the SID history of the Recycle Bin. This places two user-specific SIDs in the Recycle Bin's ACL. This problem does not occur if you migrate the profiles by using the Replace option.

Solution: On the error message, click Yes, and the Recycle Bin is emptied without a problem. If you click No, the error continues to appear until you empty the Recycle Bin.

This issue has either fixed itself or is negligible enough that users are no longer reporting it to me.
