    changing file size for trash bin recycling in Win10


    Hi all,

    the trash bin (or recycle bin? Sorry, I dont have the english version) takes files up to a certain size. Everything above that size is automatically deleted without being recycled. For example, you delete a 10MB-PDF and it disappears into the trash bin. If you delete instead a 1GB-Movie, it is deleted without going into the trash bin. Inlcuding a window "this file is too big for the trash bin, it will be deleted instantly" (or whatever that message is on an english windows).

    That is fine. But the filze size must be changed on my system. How do I do that? On my system the trash bin takes only files up to 40MB, which is way to small for my taste. This is NOT about changing the size of the trash bin.

    :)

    recycle bin

    Hi George,

    To prevent your files from being deleted from the Recycle Bin, we suggest increasing the maximum file size your Recycle Bin can keep by following the steps below:

    • Right click on the Recycle Bin icon.
    • Under the Settings for selected location, select Custom size.
    • Fill up the box for your allotted maximum file size for your Recycle Bin.
    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Recycle Bin

    Your question is somewhat confusing. Right-Clicking on the Recycle Bin icon and selecting Empty Recycle Bin will delete all the files in the Recycle Bin and no others. Unless you are in the habit of keeping all your files in the trash (Recycling) Bin
    then your other files should not be touched.

    Recycle Bin

    Hi,

    The Recycle Bin shouldn't automatically empty unless it reaches it exceeds the maximum space available on it. Another reason why this is happening may be due to third party anti virus programs or applications that manages your computer. To better assist you,
    kindly answer the questions below:

    • When did this issue start?
    • Did you install any antivirus programs/applications recently?

    To adjust the maximum size allowed in the Recycle Bin, simply right click on the program and select
    Properties. Under Recycle Bin Location, click the location of the Recycle Bin you want to change (likely your C drive). Uncheck the option
    Don't move files to the Recycle Bin. Remove files immediately when deleted and then click
    OK.

    We'll be waiting for your response.
