    Emptying recycle bins

    How can we empty all our users recycle bins,

    they cant access them but we think they may have some files left in them. We did a search for RECYCLER but couldnt find any folders - does this mean theyre gone?

    Re: Emptying recycle bins

    Did you remember to check the box for Search System Folders and [Search Hidden Files and Folders[/I]?

    If you know there's definately some there that would explain it.

    Other than that you could do with setting some Recycle Bin GPOs. Find these under: User Configuration ¦ Administrative Templates ¦ Windows Components ¦ Windows Explorer

    Here you can set a maximum size for the Recycle bin, or stop it being used altogether.

    Incidentally, you'll find that if items are deleted from a mapped drive, the Recycle Bin will not be used, whereas if items are deleted from My Documents, then it will be used.
