Recycler Folder

Should it be OK to delete files/folders in the Recycler Folder (c:\Recycler)?  If files are deleted, go to the Recycle Bin, and then the recycle bin is emptied, why would an administrator want the files to go to the recycler folder?  Is this how deleted files can be recovered?

The recycler folder IS the recycle bin - do not put files or folders in it.  Leave it alone.  If you want to delete something, delete it and empty the recycle bin.

"Is this how deleted files can be recovered?"  Yes...  The recycle bin can help because, if you accidentally delete something, you can go into the recycle bin and restore the file.  It's a kind of safety net before completely destroying the file..

The server may have but I didn't put any files or folders in it.  My deleted files are always sent to the recycle bin.  I was looking to free up some disk space and I noticed this recycler folder which has a fairly substantial number of files, folders, and disk size.

What is on the server?  If you post more details, we may be able to guide you to a better, more comprehensive solution.

How large is the C: drive?

Have you moved the Pagefile off the C: drive?

Are you using Shadow Copies on the C: drive?

Is this a Small Business Server edition or standard server?

I've only been working here for a little over a month and I still trying to figure out how things have been configured.  The C: drive is 10GB.  It is a Windows Server 2003 standard edition.  I'm not sure about the Page file but it is not using shadow copies on the C: drive.
