    Hi,

    Is it possible to change the folder location of the Recycle Bin. Like c:\windows\recycler, rather then c:\recycler?

    Yes... you right click on the folder then drag it to the directory that you want it to go and press move here

    Yes, I can do that, but when I delete a file it recreates it in the original location again. I now will have 2 recycle bins containing the same files.

    <<<< Dont think it can be done, with it being a protected system file - If you,ve got more than 1 partition you can stop windows from storing trash in that volume - but the recycler file will still remain, not much help sorry
