Home Folder Recycle Bin Deletion
We are running a 2008 R2 file server, on which are the students home folders.
We spotted that when students were deleting files/folders, on their Win 7 clients, that the files/folders were going into the file server's recycle bin. The students local recycle bins weren't showing anything though, so this was ultimately pointless. We then used group policy to turn off the recycle bin usage, and to delete files immediately.
Whether this is related or not, as we migrated file servers last summer, I've spotted a $RECYCLE.BIN folder in many if not all of the students home folders. These folders can have hundreds of MBs of files in. If I browse to them with Windows Explorer the folders appear empty (yes, hidden/system files are turned on), but it's via the wonderful TreeSize that I've spotted the files/folders are there, and TreeSize will delete them.
The problem is that there are hundreds of these folders, so does anyone know a file explorer type tool that can (a) identify these recycle bin folders on mass e.g. via a search and (b) then delete them?
