Move Recycle Bin to D drive

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Is there a way to move the recycle bin to the D drive instead of on the C drive? I am trying to save space on my SSD boot drive, so I wanted to have any recycle bin contents be stored onto my 1 Tb HDD.

Right click the Recycle bin and go to properties. Select your designated drive you want to store your recycled files to.

Technically, each drives get their own recycle bin, so no. (display hidden system files to see it in the root of each drives)

You can however determine the size of said bin.

You can't put the C drive recycle bin onto D drive, as it would just incur a read/write process. You can change the max size of the recycle bin or make it so it doesn't go in the bin, but instead is just gone.

 

But really... just empty it instead of trying to find a solution to a problem that isn't one,
