    Default Increase the size of Recycle Bin



    If you are not satisfy with your limited size of Recycle Bin, then you can increase it at maximum level.

    Lets Begin :-

    * Confirm that your Recycle Bin is Empty

    1. Right Click on Recycle Bin and select Properties





    2. Enter the maximum value in Custom size box of General tab



    3. Then click apply and OK

    Now your Recycle Bin has More size to store.

    Nice way to increase or reduce the Recycle Bin size. Thanks.

    You can do so similarly for your Temp Internet Files:

    Open IE > Internet Options > Tools > Internet Options > General Tab > Browsing History

    Choose the Size you want for your Cache here.

    Nice. I usually just delete things without sending them to the Recycle Bin, but this would work wonders for a lot of people I know. Thanks.

    I don't use the Recycle Bin very often. Usually when I am wanting to get rid of something, I really want it gone.

    That is basically the purpose with which everyone deletes the files, but sometimes, using the Shift+delete method can have catastrophic effects
    I would be the perfect person to talk about it Once, by mistake, while deleting a folder inside the parent folder, somehow, the parent folder was selected! And shift+delete Horrific experience. Thankfully i had recuva handy and realised the mistake right then. But you don't realise the mistakes instantaneously always.

    From then on, i have made it a habit to always delete to recycle bin first, and at the end of the day or the session, i empty the recycle bin. You never know what you might need again

    While I may delete files every day, I usually empty the Recycle Bins every week only... just in case I need a deleted file, I know where it is
