    Server 2003 SP2: Where's setting for recycle bin?

    The recycle bin is not displayed on the desktop, and I can't seem to find it.

    Thanks

    I am critically low on disk space, but when I choose to delete files, it asks me to confirm placement into the recycle bin, but it never releases the space.

    As a work around, i am cutting and pasting to a drive with more room.

    To open the Recycle bin: Start > Run >shell:RecycleBinFolder

    I run Treesize free for those "out of space" issues. It's nice an easy to locate the space hogs and delete the offending files.

    cheers, Paul

    Thank you. I was also able to create a new shortcut using the command you mentioned.

    Most versions of Windows since Win95 allow holding down the Shift key while clicking Delete on context menus or pressing the Del key to bypass the Recycle Bin. BUT, that can be dangerous if unsure about the results, have to be absolutely sure the permanent deletion is desired. It is Microsoft's small way of protecting us from ourselves/our own actions.
