|This may seem a bit of an odd question but I just wanted to ask to see if anyone knows.|
I opened the properties of the recycle bin and have it set to 1% of all drives, although I've only got one drive so its really 1% of that drive.
It is a 1TB drive, actual size is 931GB. So, one percent of this drive is 9.31GB. So I'm guessing I should be able to store upto 9.31GB of files in the recycle bin before it starts actually deleting items to make room for anything else added.
However, it currently has 3GB of files in it. I just tried to put another 4gb in there which obviously equates to 7GB in total. ANd yet it came up with an error stating the files were too big to put into the recycle bin.
This indicates the size of the bin is in actuality less than 4GB when it should be 9.31GB. So why is it ignoring my 1% setting?
