    we don't have it here... (CC3) They have to come and ask us to restore stuff from backup. tell them not to delete anything unless they are 100% sure they don't need it.

    We don't hide it here, but I wish I could forcibly empty it!

    We hide it here for everyone except Admin staff.
    No complaints so far, staff know that once something is gone its gone so they have got into the habit of saving things!

    We've just got rid of it - and cleared 6Gb of disk space - nobody seems to have noticed!

    We are the same as Pete10141748.

    Staff and students know that once its been deleted, then its gone.

    Hidden here too - as pretty much useless. Deleting from their MyDocs (mapped drive to server) doesnt bin it to there anyway. Staff and Students have got used to coming and seeing us and asking nicely for us to restore it...

    Don't know about Joanne, but Shadow Copy is my little secret. I don't advertise its existance. It's very handy to rescue stuff that's been deleted by accident or to prove that a child didn't save it at the end of a lesson, but I don't want them to become reliant on Shadow... I'd rather they were careful in the first place.

    Ah....good old shadow copy. Always saves the day....it saves so much time on trailing through back up exec, naturally i keep back up exec to recover major stuff from ages ago. But shadow is the boyo!

    We hide the bin and empty it at logoff using EmptyRecycleBin.exe from here
