I'can change the size of the recycle bin. I have tried right clicking on the
recycle icon and then on the Global tab. I then click "Use one setting for
all drives" and then set the slide bar at 10% and click apply and OK. My HD
is 160 gigs so I should end up with about 16 gigs of recycle space, yet it
only shows 3.99 gigs available. I have also tried to configure the drives
independently and end up with the same result. If I delete something that
exceeds the limit a previously deleted file is removed from the recycle bin
to make space.
I have the same thing on winXP. drive of 140Gb, set to 10%, capacity available only at 4Gb instead of 14Gb. I think it's a windows default max recycle bin size. I mean realistically there shouldn't be a need to keep files that huge after you deleted them...
