how do I empty a recycle bin on a server share?

Have redirected the documents folder on my users, I now would like to empty their recycle bins which are starting to grow.
Does anyone know of a nifty way of doing this?

Since the server recognizes that it is a recycle bin folder/file I thought i'd just right hand click on it and choose 'empty recycle bin' but no such luck...

Just delete the SID-named folder within the Recycler folder.

I was hoping you would say that...
Are we sure that will not end up in the world as we know it folding over on itself and imploding? The user will simply not have the recycle bin files anymore, no nag screen, no error messages?

Not that I've ever seen.

If you are risk adverse, test it.  Log in yourself, copy a load of document, delete them.  Try deleting the SID-name folder, see what impact it has, I'll wager none.
