CodeMeter - Windows Recycle Bin "SOLVED"
 
""UPDATED WORKING SOLUTION FURTHER DOWN""

Lately I've not been able to see deleted files in the Recycle Bin.
With some googling I found out that the CodeMeter USB-stick overlaps the other hdd's and causing major problems. For instance, you won't be able to restore- or see deleted files in your recycle bin folder.

There should be a solution to this but since a new update to Codemeter removed their "tools > Code Meter Disc Configuration" I have no idea how to fix this problem.

I found this on the web:

I just discovered a working solution!

CodeMeter 4.30 and later
Since CodeMeter Version 4.30, the Disc Configuration tool is no longer available.
But the disk configuration can still be changed by using the cmu32-command line tool:

1.Open your command line console (e.g. Start > Run... and then type cmd)
2.Browse / set the current directory to C:\Program Files\CodeMeter\Runtime\bin
3.Now type the following:

cmu32 -s******** --set-config-disk RemovableDisk

Please replace the ******** with the serial number of your CmStick.
The serial number can be found on the CodeMeter key itself, or open the CodeMeter Control panel for the CmStick’s serial number.

Type Exit to close the command prompt.
Finally unplug and replug the codemeterstick.

To change the setting back, you can use this command line:

cmu32 -s******** --set-config-disk LocalDisk.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This solution should work. A problem though is that when you type C:\Program Files in CMD you will get an error message telling you that: 'C:\Program' is not recognized as a internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

If you know the basics on how to Browse with the 'CD' commands, you will be able to find this with no problem. Remember that the cmu32 might be in another folder and the correct directory should be Program Files <x86>

yep its a known issue,that will hopefully be fixed when a new codemeter software is released

In the mean time,do what I did create a folder on the desk top,put all the stuff you want to dump in there,and only thenmove it into the Recycle bin,when your sure you dont need it

So you created a thread with an offensive title and then told yourself the solution.
Congratulations.

Grum.

Wait, didn't Reason 5 have a dongle? Or was Record the reason for the dongle?

Yea, Record had the dongle. I sure would like to use Pulverizer in 6, but tradeoff isn't worth it to me.

I don't find anything offensive about the title of this thread at all. This is a SERIOUS bug that could easily result in lost data and it's directly caused by the copy protection dongle.

What's offensive to me is that I had to hunt down the solution to this myself when instead I should have been informed by Propellerheads directly about it via email as soon as they were aware of it. A lack of transparency about things like this is a very bad sign for any software company. I sincerely hope that Propellerheads can honestly assess how poorly they've handled this and use it as a lesson to do better in the future.

Bjerre, thanks so much for tracking down a solution to this. The command line approached worked perfectly for me.

This is a serious bug, IMO. A potential problem is that the Microsoft Web site offers a general solution to the problem of "invisible" Recycle Bin files that might work but it will result in the deletion of any current files that are in the Recycle Bin. I didn't try that myself but other users could wind up going that route and it might cause them to lose important data. The approach you posted simply makes the files visible again. I think I like one better ;-)

Meanwhile, where's Propellerheads on this? I'm disappointed that they didn't contact users directly about it.

I got in to the habit of keeping my important data out of the recycle bin ;-)

Not sure why wibu removed the option from bundled version of codemeter control centre after record 1.0
