There's a nice tip on this page on how to do it with a mapped network drive linked to one of your "My Documents" sub-folders. Worth a try.
- Map a network drive to the network share you want to use. Make sure that
the drive is re-connected on logon. If
you don't know how to do this, search
- Browse to C:\users\.
- Right-click on one of the folders in this location (I chose saved games)
and click properties.
- Select the Location tab.
- Click Move, browse to to root of the drive you mapped in step 1, and
click Select Folder.
- Click Ok and click yes in the dialogue box that appears.
- Repeat these same steps for all users on the computer.
You can now verify that the network
drive is protected by the recycle bin
by right-clicking on the recycle bin
and clicking properties. The network
drive should be listed in the Recycle
Bin Locations column.
1. This only protects files accessed through the mapped network drive, and
not by UNC paths. So for example, if
you mapped \server\share to z:, and
delete something off the z drive, it
will go to the recycle bin. However,
if you browse to \server\share and
delete a file, it will be deleted
- I don't know what will happen if your network drive is not available,
so beware. This may not work well with
- What ever files that were supposed to be stored in the folder you select
in step 3 will now be stored on your
mapped network drive by default. This
can actually be quite useful.
