Desktop folder redirection, file deletion on the desktop not move into Recycle bin
Posted on 2003-11-25
In Windows Server 2003, after some workstations join the domain and setup the "Folder Redirection" for the desktop folder in the default group policy, suppose I login in the workstation and I have a file on the desktop but we mistakenly delete it, the file is not moved into the recycle bin, instead the file seems to be permanently deleted. I want to ask is that, is there any way to make the deletion more safe, that is, when we delete a file on the desktop, it moves to the recycle bin first such that I can do the clean up the recycle bin procedure later?
Note that if we do the "Folder Redirection" for the "My document" folder, and if we delete the file in the "My document" folder, the deleted file will move to the recycle bin first. Only the folder redirection for "desktop folder" does not follow this rule.
