Hi
paste
>>>>Sounds like the recycle bin files are being saved (by design) into the System Restore files area. If you do not use the System Restore function of Windows ME, then you can clear out these files and recover some of the disk space (which you are not using anyway).
If your system _RESTORE files have grown too large, this can be corrected by disabling and then reenabling System Restore, to delete all the old restore points. Go to (Start - Settings - Control Panel - System - Performance tab - File System - Troubleshooting tab), and check the box for "Disable System Restore", click Apply and exit. System will reboot.

Allow STMGR time to delete all the old restore files, wait for no disk activity for at least a minute. Then run DEFRAG on the drive. Next go back into the Troubleshooting tab and uncheck the box to enable System Restore again. Then use the Hard Disk tab to set the "System Restore disk space use:" slide bar to only use about 1000Mb (or less) of disk space. Also, make sure system is up to date on the Windows UpDates site, as there is a year old fix for System Restore not working correctly.<<<<<<

Does this help
