Recycle Bin Size

Does anyone know to set the recycle bin size to < 1% of the hard drive? Registry hack? I've got a 60 GB drive with 2 partitions so 1% is still 300 megs per, far more than I need...

Dude, are you close to needing that 300 meg? If so, right click on the recycle bin and just tell it to delete the files right away instead of sending them to the recycle bin. That's less by 300 meg :p

I thought of that but I still want the recycle bin for those times when I click a little too fast...

that's why i leave mine at the default 10%. That gives me almost 2gig of recycle bin space at the moment. It's not like i'm running low any time soon so when i get to it i empty it. And yeah, i fill even that much up at times and go back in to retrieve something. With 300 meg, it will discard the oldest rather quickly. My opinion of course :D

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
