On Windows 2008 after Parallels Panel installation, the "The recycle bin is corrupted" error message may arise.


The issue may be resolved by the following steps:

1. It is necessary to remove and recreate the Recycle Bin folder. Usually, it is a hidden system folder named "$Recycle.Bin" and located in the root path for every logical drive. The command below is an example for drive "C" (it is necessary to execute such a command for every logical drive letter):
rmdir c:\$Recycle.Bin /S /Q && mkdir c:\$Recycle.Bin && attrib +h +s c:\$Recycle.Bin

2. Replace the %plesk_dir%\etc\DiskSecurity\DiskSecurity.xml file with the attachment. See the article about the hot-fix installation procedure,

3. Execute the command below to apply the new security settings (it may take some time):
"%plesk_bin%\applysecurity.exe" --apply
