I can't find anything on Google for this, so maybe I'm missing something.
We use folder redirection on our network for the Documents folder, Desktop, Favourites etc etc to a file server. A side effect seems to be that Vista's recycle bin is now located in each user profile rather than having one recycle bin per PC and files which are deleted from network locations are now stored in the Recycle bin, located in the redirected folders on the file server.
This is problematic, as users rarely empty their recycle bins and so the file server begins to fill up with these recycle bins full of deleted files. We use VSS and take snapshots of the server every hour, so we don't need each user having their own recycle bin on the server and can't rely on users to empty the bins. Is there any way we can disable this and still have files deleted locally go to the recycle bin on the local PC like it was with XP and previous systems?
If not, the only alternative is to disable the recycle bin for all users or restrict the size.
Thanks for any help
