Microsoft released security updates resolving a bug in the latest versions of Windows client and server operating system that caused the permanent removal of files when users attempted to send over 1,000 items simultaneously to the Recycle Bin “On a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2, you try to delete more than 1000 files in a single batch. However, all the files are deleted permanently and do not go into Recycle Bin as expected. This issue does not occur when you delete the files one by one,” Microsoft informed. Customers affected by this issue can resolve it by applying the April 2010 stability and reliability update for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, or manually download via KB979158.
