Recycle Bin does not work/permissions error Tags: Permissions Windows Last response: May 11, 2004 11:58 PM in Windows 2000/NT Share Anonymous May 10, 2004 8:16:42 PM Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win2000.setup_upgrade (More info?) I have upgraded some of the PCs at work, and one of them is doing some really odd stuff. It malfunctioned as soon as we changed the computer name and network ID for the server. The new user is a normal user, but cannot use his recycle bin (pressing delete just deletes the file - no move to bin animation). Also, only items created by the user can be altered. It says there is an access violation. Anyone have any ideas about this? Should I try to recreate the user account? Thanks for the input, John More about : recycle bin work permissions error Anonymous May 11, 2004 11:58:18 PM Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win2000.setup_upgrade (More info?) Hi John, Check whether the "remove files immediately when deleted" option is checked in the Recycle Bin properties. As for the access violation part, since the user is able to create and alter items, check whether the user has adequate permissions for other items that the user wants to alter.
