Is this just the folder where files go after they're kicked out of the
recycle bin...all of the information I've been able to get from researching
this, has hinted at that, but has not really specified directly....can
someone let me know if this is true, and if I want to completely delete
files, will deleting everything in that folder do it....and free up disk
space from those apparently useless files....thanks in advance for any info...

No.

%systemdrive%\RECYCLER\Your SID # is YOUR Recycle Bin.

The Recycler folder is used only on NTFS formatted drives. It's a Hidden
folder.

%systemdrive%\RECYCLER
With at least one folder
SID #
for every user on the machine.

If there is only one user, then there is only one
SID # folder. That SID # folder is the Recycle Bin.

Security identifiers (SIDs) are numeric values that identify a user or
group.

Can you try and follow the flow of conversation please- rather than jump to the top after a series of bottom posting. It really isn't hard to do- for most people of even average intelligence.

Sorry if it is complicated for you. It is called a hyperlink, clicking on it ........

It seems that following the flow of conversation is too complicated too.

Alan,

I didn't jump anywhere.

I top post. *Always*.

I was the second and fourth poster.

You were the third and fifth poster.

Does one bottom post make a series?

It looked to me like you had forgotten to paste or type in the url.

There is *no* hyperlink in your first post.

See if you can see any hyperlinks in your first post here...
http://groups-beta.google.com/group/microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support/browse_thread/thread/2fdd89fa9b0853bf/6e37c707b9b95f6b?q=group:microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support+insubject:Recycler+insubject:Folder+insubject:in+insubject:XP+insubject:Pro&rnum=1&hl=en#6e37c707b9b95f6b

Or *anything* that looks like a url.

Point it out to me and I'll click on it or paste it in the IE Address bar.

I usually do not bother to read bottom posts.
