How to Set the Maximum Size of Recyle Bin Programmatically

In Windows XP it is possible to set the maximum size of the Recyle Bin via
the following system registry key:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\BitBucket\Percent

However, I have been unable to determine how to accomplish the same task in
Vista (via the registry, WMI, or Win32 API).

If anyone happens to know how to do this in Vista (or could point me in a
direction where I might find the answer), it would be very much appreciated.

Thank you,
Spazz

Hey Spirit,

Thank you for the reply. Unfortunately, these links all explain how to
adjust the Vista Recycle Bin _manually_ via the UI. I am looking for a way
to accomplish the same thing, but _programmatically_ (e.g. from a C++
application).

Does anyone know how this can be accomplished?

Thank you (in advance),
Spazz
