I have a Windows 7 Desktop that is connected to a Windows 2003 Domain. The Desktop has folder redirection of My Documents only and offline files enabled. I have stared receiving a Recycle Bin error “The Recycle Bin on \\server\my documents\user\my documents is corrupted. Do you want to empty the Recycle Bin for this drive” does not matter what I say the error comes back.
I have run rd /s /q C:\$Recycle.bin on the Windows 7 computer. I have search for a $Recycle.bin on \\server\my documents\user\my documents there is not one. I have on the Windows 7 computer set the registry key HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\BitBucket\KnownFolder\{<The GUID of the Folder>} to 1.
Any Ideas?

You could try rd /s /q "share":\$Recycle.bin where "share" is the redirected folder drive

If you redirect "My Documents" Recycle Bin can become an issue (wasting tons of expensive server disk space).

You can control Recycle Bin behavior with this key:
"HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\BitBucket\@
NukeOnDelete=1
would disable usage of RecycleBin for Redirected Folders. I recommended to do this.
You can create a ADM/ADMX template to offer it via GPEDIT.

Usually other techniques are available on the server to ensure file backups are available and can be restored (e.g. ShadowCopy).

Registry keys cannot overwrite group policy.  The error is a file table error on the server and you'd have to have control of the server, take it off line, run a chkdsk, to fix it.
SO,
tell admin to fix the file table on the server, AND
request, as Number-1 suggests, a change of group policy to keep recycle on the local drive.

I have tried the two suggestion from Number-1 neither worked.
I cannot try nwteckdesk suggestion; there is no time window available to take it off line. The folder redirection to this server is temporary, and they will soon be directed to another server, so I am going to make the one user live with it for a couple of weeks.
Thank you for the help!
