Cannot find file and folder $RECYCLE.BIN in windows 7

I have recovered a deleted file Episode2.wmv. In recovery software it was showing it in folder $RECYCLE.BIN\SOME-STRANGE-LONG-FOLDER-NAME\Episode2.wmv. I recovered it on root c:\ but I am unable to find this file or folder.

Just to check I again run recovery software and tried recovering that file again but it show me that file Episode2.wmv already exists.

I have searched for file and for folder but could not find it.

Where can I find folder $RECYCLE.BIN on Windows 7 and why can't I see that file. I have also show all hidden file and folders from folder option but not luck.

Thanks.

$Recycle.Bin isn't just a hidden folder, it's a protected system folder. To be able to see it, go to Folder Options -> View and uncheck the "Hide protected operating system files" option.

Untick "Hide protected operating system files" under folder options and try again.
