 +====== Getting UAC Prompt when trying to Delete files (send to recycle bin) ======
 +Probably the user doesn'​t have permission to their recycle bin.
 +How I resolved it:
 +  - Got the user to log out
 +  - As administrator,​ deleted the $RECYCLE.BIN folder from the user's profile (this happened to be inside a User Profile Disk VHDX, which I mounted)
 +  - Logged in as user, get message: "The Recycle Bin on C:\ is corrupted. Do you want to empty to Recycle Bin for this drive?"​ Answered: Yes
 +  - Got a UAC prompt, entered the administrator username and password
 +  - Now the user can delete files without getting a UAC prompt
