    Students getting a hidden $RECYCLE.BIN in their user area

    Our students are getting a hidden recycle bin in their user areas. I fills up as they delete stuff but I dont think they can empty it and it slowly eats up their storgage quota.

    Up until now I have just been emptying it for them but I want to deal with it once and for all.


    So why is it there?

    How do I remove it?

    How do I stop it coming back?

    User Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ Windows Components \ Windows Explorer
    \
    Do not move deleted files to the Recycle Bin.

    Enabled??
