Properties of the recycle bin in W2K

By ckozaczensky ·
We have begun the transformation from NT4.0 to a W2K network. Some recycle bins (Win2K) empty immediately,never hold docs. at all. Others wait to be emptied. They seem to set their own properties. I need to set them all to retain items 'til they areemptied. Any suggestions?

On the desktop, right-click Recycle Bin, and then click Properties, click on the global tab.
Make sure that the 'Do not move files to the Recycle Bin check box' option is not checked. You may also want the 'Display delete confirmation dialog' checked so that users will be asked if they want to permanantly delete their files.

I have already tried this and I've also tried expanding the size of the recycle bin. Could this be an actual software glich on a few of the new machines?
