Recycle bin files on USB conundrum

Have a read-only external USB stick with a copy of an imaged recycle bin.


The goal is to pass off USB stick to an attorney for review of recycle bin $R files.


WIN10 forensic laptop (A) recycle bin is empty, no software running.


When plugged into the forensic laptop, I can navigate via File Explorer to the recycle bin folders and files.


I can open the $R files and SID of users for 2 user accounts.


I properly eject USB stick and connect to another laptop (B) before passing it off to the attorney.


Laptop (B) is my day-to-day use laptop.


The recycle bin on laptop (B) is empty.


Laptop (B) is a WIN10 machine.


When I plug USB stick into the laptop (B) and navigate to recycle bin files, no SIDs, instead recycle bin icons.


When I click on the recycle bin icons, no content.

Again access to the recycle bin contents for review purposes is the end goal

Any ideas on how to resolve this?

UPDATE:  Appears that McAfee/or a setting on laptop was interfering as I could access the on a personal machine.
