Hi guys.

When I hover the mouse over the Trash icon it says there are ten items, but when I open Trash there's nothing there.

Has anyone else come across this problem?

Thanks.

Cheers, mapes 12. No good, unfortunately.

I even moved some other files to Trash, and then right-clicked on the Trash icon and selected delete: The files I'd just moved to Trash were gone, but the initial ten were and are still there, although they don't appear in the Trash folder . . .

I'm going to restart the system and see if they're still there . . .

Well, what do you know? It's gone!

The mystery isn't solved, but the ten items are gone.

Thanks again for your effort, mapes 12.
