Enable Recycle Bin on removable media?

Discussion in 'Microsoft Windows 2000 Registry Archive' started by The Beerslayer, Sep 19, 2003.

  1. Just wondering...

    Is it possible to enable the Recycle Bin on removable media under
    Windows 2000? I assume there's a registry entry somewhere that
    controls whether drives flagged by the system as "Removable" have a
    recycle bin or not.

    The reason I ask is that I just bought a USB flash drive (128 MB)
    and was surprised to discover that files I deleted did not go to
    the Recycle Bin. No significant loss... THIS time. But I would
    like the Recycle Bin enabled on this flash drive in the future, if
    it's possible.

    In case it matters, I will occasionally use this drive on a machine
    running Windows 98 as well.

    Thanks in advance...
