nt recycle is either a system folder to your desktop recycle bin, or it's a mapped network connection for deletion. ntrecycle is part of the NT OS environment and usually shouldn't be messed with.

If you're on a network, chances are that 12gigs is not yours (or only partially yours). Try doing a disk cleanup, and check your permissions, too.

Might also be other uses on that machine. Check your user accounts.

FYI, my solution to your problem would be to ditch NT (which isn't supported anymore) and upgrade!
