    Just nuke the contents of C:\Recycler\ in a logoff script.

    It depends where it is. You may need to do the following if your redirect My Documents to a Windows Server share.

    Code:
    DEL  /S/Q \\server\share\user_folder\RECYCLER\*.*

    Resurrecting an old thread, but is it possible to delete the contents of the recycle bin of items that have been there for longer than N days (say 14)?

    Hoping a script guru could help? Ta!
