Take Charge of your Recycle Bin
You have a few options when it comes to the Recycle Bin. For example, you can specify how much disk space you want to devote to deleted (or potentially deleted) material.
To see what changes you can make to your Recycle Bin, right-click its icon and choose Properties. When the dialog box opens, you can select the amount of space used by the Recycle Bin. The default is 10 percent. If you like, you can also deselect the check box, Display Confirmation Dialog. With this deselected, you will no longer be asked if you're sure you want to move a file (or files) to the Recycle Bin. You'll still be prompted when you empty the Recycle Bin.
If you have more than one drive, you can select Configure Drives Independently and then set the space requirements for each drive.
After you make all the desired changes in the Properties dialog box, click OK to save the changes and close the dialog box.
