Windows Roaming Profile & Recycle Bin

Posted on 2008-02-08

We currently use roaming profiles across the network and users My Documents folder is redirected to a network location too. However, I've just noticed that the recycle bin is also stored on the network with the profile.
Is there a way I can for example, run a registry change with the logon script to change all My Documents deleted files to permanently delete, and set the Local Drive to say, 1% for deleted files? I know I can specify in a GPO to not use the recycle bin at all, but if I can get away with this, I would still like the recycle bin to stay active for users, but only locally. Ideally, I need to be able to edit the registry settings for the options as per Recycle Bin > Right Click > Properties.
