The Recycler is the Recycle bin - you can't delete it, it's a system folder.  You can review my document on boot drive size, however, for Terminal Services, I do recommend as large a partition as you can have.  But the information on my site may help you free up some space.

Thanx leew it's really helpful and interesting.
I don wanna delete the c:\recycler but i can del the contents, i mean, c:\recycler\*.*
will it make any issue?. I think all the files in c:\recycler are deleted by all the users who log into term server, and i got permission from them to empty their Recycle Bin, so i thin i can go ahead! cant i?

It shouldn't cause problems... but I'm not sure that it will work.  I suspect you'll get an access denied.

I'm not sure this is appropriate.  I offered solutions and answered at least part of the question directly, "What is c:\recycler folder meant for?"
