RECYCLER Folder Reappearing In Users Folders

I have been setting up SBS 2003 for my business, after overcoming big errors, I now have this annoying little glitch. The "Users Shared Folder" on the server lists the user's folders, for example if the users are John and Jack it has John and Jack's personal folder's. When a user deletes an item from their personal folder another folder called "RECYCLER" appears outside their folder in the "Users Shared folder" folder. When you delete it it reappears when a user deletes something from their personal folder. How do I stop this happening?

Thanks

That's actually normal behavior if you've mapped that folder to a drive letter or have used the My Docunents folder redirection wizard.  The only way to avoid it is to change the settings on the Recycle Bin Global Settings to configure each drive separately, and then not enable it for that.

But you really don't have to do this because Emptying the Recycle Bin will empty it on this drive as well.

The only reason you are seeing that folder, by the way, is because you have hidden files enabled.
