    I am not sure if this should go here or the networking section... never mind tho!

    We are running Windows server 2003 SP 2 and we are having a little issue where when users are deleting their files it gets stored on the server in a folder called "RECYCLER" due to space problems we would like to change it so when users delete their files the deleted files are moved in to the actual client machine's recycle bin (or is just deleted without going into any recycle bin!)

    Any ideas how we might do this?

    Thanks very much

    edit: The client PCs are all running XP Pro

    We use Win2k Server at work, and when users delete files in their personal (public) folders from their desktop, they do not appear in the Server Recycle bin.

    Are you saying users logon to your Win2003 Server and delete files? Or does Win2003 work differently when users delete server files from their desktop?
