Resize the Recycle Bin in Windows 7


Uploaded on October 14, 2010 by Avoiderrors

If your hard drive is short on space you might want to consider reducing the size of your Recycle Bin. By default Windows XP reserves 10% of your hard drive for the bin. You can save up to 3GB of space if you resize a bin to 1% on a 40GB hard drive. You can resize individual drive or all of them globally.

Before starting, I would recommend emptying the bin first. (Of course you should verify what you are emptying first.) You may also want to create a Restore Point before applying this or any system changes. Distributed by Tubemogul.
