moderated Recycle Bin Question


Tom Behler
 

Hello, everyone.

 

Recently, whenever I try to empty my re-cycle bin, I get a edialog asking me if I want to cancel all transfers in progress.

 

I can find the yes and no options, but when I hit enter or spacebar on the options, nothing seems to happen.

 

Then, if I totally exit out of the re-cycle bin and later go back in, the bin is totally empty.

 

Can anyone explain what might be going on here?  I’m not even sure what these options mean and why they have recently appeared.

 

I’m using Jaws 2022 and Windows 10 here.

 

Thanks!

Hi Tom,

 

I’m not sure why you’re suddenly getting the “Cancel all transfers in progress” query, which has long been familiar to me. someone else might have a suggestion. However, I’d just press the spacebar on “No,” and then alt-tab out of that window. As you’ve discovered, returning there should show all items are gone.

 

The other way to get rid of all recycle bin items is to perform a disc clean. It would remove a lot more unwanted items on your system in addition to those in the recycle bin.

Thanks, Adrian.

 

This obviously has not been a major problem, but certainly a curiosity.

 

I’ll use your first suggested strategy for now, but keep the disc clean option in mind as well.

 

Should probably do that every once in a while anyway.

Hi, Tom. When I inquired of Google, Why am I seeing a message that reads Cancel all transfers in Progress when I try to empty the Recycle Bin, I found the following,

 

Last night when I was trying to shutdown Windows 10 PC, I suddenly saw a small strange message box with a title “This will cancel all transfers in progress” and with a confirmation message “Are you sure you want to cancel the transfers?” but without any further explanation.

When you search about this strange message box online, nothing much is available except some other people also wondering about this. The first thought that everyone asks is whether this is a malware. I myself became suspicious about malware infection and analyzed the window using many different tools.

Why am I seeing this message?

So what is this message about? It is a message displayed by Windows File Explorer. As anyone can imagine, it is displayed when you try to close Windows File Explorer process when some file operations are in progress. A very good scenario that I was able to repeat multiple times is when your computer’s storage drive has been idle for some time and then you suddenly start a file operation followed by system shutdown request.

For example, you were watching a YouTube video for some time, then you think of shutting down the PC and going to sleep. So you quickly close the browser, proceed to empty the recycle bin, then on Windows desktop you hit Alt+F4 to bring the classic shutdown dialog and proceed to shutdown the Windows. You might see this strange message appear.

How can I avoid this message in future?

One way to stop this message is by increasing system RAM or replacing the existing RAM modules to larger capacity ones. This will ensure that your system uses RAM instead of virtual memory when some programs become too large to fit on the limited amount of RAM your system has. Microsoft recommends at least 8 GB of RAM if you want better performance from your system.

If your system has a hard drive, then it could be part of the problem. You can start by upgrading to a solid state drive (SSD). When the hard drive has been idle and with disk caching enabled, it takes a few seconds for the hard drive to get ready and the file operation to be completed. Disk caching makes hard drive perform better because it buffers everything instead of actually writing to the hard drive. But this also means that the file operations are not instant and require a few extra seconds. If in the meanwhile, you start shutting down Windows, the file operations are incomplete and File Explorer might show you that strange message.

There is nothing to be done really. But if you want to avoid seeing this message, then just wait half a minute after starting any file operations (especially related to emptying of the recycle bin because these operations are invisible) before shutting down the Windows. It seems to appear when you use classic shutdown dialog, so you should start using the new shutdown using Start menu in Windows 10.

Hi again, Tom. By the way, the link to the page with the article which I quoted in my last message is below. I hope it renders OK without being broken. I think I'll try to use a hyperlink to make it easier.

When this happens to me I minimize the recycle bin to the task bar then
alt tab to it on the task bar and then close it.

Recently, whenever I try to empty my re-cycle bin, I get a edialog

I can find the yes and no options, but when I hit enter or spacebar on

Hi Tom,
 
Try the following:
1. Highlight the Recycle Bin desktop icon but, do not open it, just select it.
 
Press, Alt + enter, to open the Recycle Bin icon properties.
 
Now tab to, Display delete confirmation dialog, and make sure this is checked.  If it isn't, press the spacebar to check it, tab to Okay and press enter to save / close.
 
After doing this I quit getting the cancel dialog and only had to spacebar the yes button to confirm the deletion of the recycle bin.  But, the recycle bin won't show as empty until it's closed and reopened.
 
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go Dodgers!

A very good scenario that I was able to repeat multiple times is when your computer’s storage drive has been idle for some time and then you suddenly start a file operation followed by system shutdown request.

For example, you were watching a YouTube video for some time, then you think of shutting down the PC and going to sleep. So you quickly close the browser, proceed to empty the recycle bin, then on Windows desktop you hit Alt+F4 to bring the classic shutdown dialog and proceed to shutdown the Windows. You might see this strange message appear.

How can I avoid this message in future?

One way to stop this message is by increasing system RAM or replacing the existing RAM modules to larger capacity ones. This will ensure that your system uses RAM instead of virtual memory when some programs become too large to fit on the limited amount of RAM your system has. Microsoft recommends at least 8 GB of RAM if you want better performance from your system.

If your system has a hard drive, then it could be part of the problem. You can start by upgrading to a solid state drive (SSD). When the hard drive has been idle and with disk caching enabled, it takes a few seconds for the hard drive to get ready and the file operation to be completed. Disk caching makes hard drive perform better because it buffers everything instead of actually writing to the hard drive. But this also means that the file operations are not instant and require a few extra seconds. If in the meanwhile, you start shutting down Windows, the file operations are incomplete and File Explorer might show you that strange message.

There is nothing to be done really. But if you want to avoid seeing this message, then just wait half a minute after starting any file operations (especially related to emptying of the recycle bin because these operations are invisible) before shutting down the Windows. It seems to appear when you use classic shutdown dialog, so you should start using the new shutdown using Start menu in Windows 10.

Subject: Recycle Bin Question

 

Hello, everyone.

 

Recently, whenever I try to empty my re-cycle bin, I get a edialog asking me if I want to cancel all transfers in progress.

 

I can find the yes and no options, but when I hit enter or spacebar on the options, nothing seems to happen.

 

Then, if I totally exit out of the re-cycle bin and later go back in, the bin is totally empty.

 

Can anyone explain what might be going on here?  I’m not even sure what these options mean and why they have recently appeared.

 

I’m using Jaws 2022 and Windows 10 here.

 

Thanks!

Not Tom, but thanks anyway.  Implemented your suggestion and next time something gets moved to the recycle bin, will try it.

Hi Tom,

 

Try the following:

1. Highlight the Recycle Bin desktop icon but, do not open it, just select it.

 

Press, Alt + enter, to open the Recycle Bin icon properties.

 

Now tab to, Display delete confirmation dialog, and make sure this is checked.  If it isn't, press the spacebar to check it, tab to Okay and press enter to save / close.

 

After doing this I quit getting the cancel dialog and only had to spacebar the yes button to confirm the deletion of the recycle bin.  But, the recycle bin won't show as empty until it's closed and reopened.

 

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go Dodgers!

Hi, Tom. When I inquired of Google, Why am I seeing a message that reads Cancel all transfers in Progress when I try to empty the Recycle Bin, I found the following,

 

Last night when I was trying to shutdown Windows 10 PC, I suddenly saw a small strange message box with a title “This will cancel all transfers in progress” and with a confirmation message “Are you sure you want to cancel the transfers?” but without any further explanation.

When you search about this strange message box online, nothing much is available except some other people also wondering about this. The first thought that everyone asks is whether this is a malware.

I did as you suggest, and delete confirmation was already checked.

 

I am thinking my best solution for now is to give the re-cycle process a bit of time to complete, rather than immediately trying to work with the cancel all transfers dialog.

 

Will see what happens the next time I need to empty the re-cycle bin.

This solution works for me. Just minimize the recycle to the task bar
when this happens then maximize it and it will allow it to be closed
normally.
