Preparing to delete one item from my recycle bin, I found it full of Bak Files. I didn't put them there, does anyone know what they are and how they could have got in?

You do not say what type of *.bak (backup file)

Is this what they are? click here
(scroll half way down page for info)

Outlook Express *.bak's are backups of your mail folders created after a 'compact messages' has been performed they sometimes appear in your Recycle Bin.

Greetings lotvic and thanks for the swift reply. They are Outlook Express bak files and, you're correct I did compact a short while ago...didn't know they headed for the Deleted Bin. Thanks for the help.
