Default naggin recycle bin

if you ever had a usb harddrive and disconnect it frequently u probably notticed that every time you connect it theres a "recycled" hidden folder on it.
i think its pretty annoying thing
theres an option in recycle bin settings to manage harddrives independently but that only lasts untill i add a harddrive and then windows fkn takes over again.
anyone knows how can i prevent it?
is there a registry setting that tells windows to put a recycled folder on every damn harddrive it encounters? or a file that controls recycle bin?

The files deleted still go to your normal recycle bin, or should atleast. Why is this such a problem?

I think it belongs there, just like a normal HDD does.

Right mouse click recycle bin. Under the global tab click configure drives independently. Then you can select which drives will hold the recycle bin and how much of the drive is reserved. Have fun. ps assuming you are running win xp.

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64
