I have seen some posts here about clearing up some disc space and decided to tell of a little trick to do it.

The recycle bin has a certain amount of disc space reserved for it to store the things you delete until you can empty it. The default setting is 10%. So if you have a 40 gig HD like I do, 4 gigs are set aside for the recycle bin. Since I empty my bin regularly that is wasting a huge amount of space.

The way to change this setting and recover some usable space is really easy. Right click on the recycle bin and then click on properties. Make sure the "use one setting for all drives" is checked, it should be, and move the sliding pointer down to where you want it. I set mine to 1%. Click Okay and you are done.
