If you like keeping all your deleted files in the Recycle Bin as a safety net, you can increase the maximum storage size for the Recycle Bin.

  1. On the desktop, right-click Recycle Bin, and then click Properties.

  2. Under Recycle Bin Location, click the location of the Recycle Bin you want to change (likely your C drive).

  3. Click Custom size, and then, in the Maximum size (MB) box, enter a maximum storage size (in megabytes) for the Recycle Bin.

  4. Click OK.

Right click the recycle bin on the desktop>properties>custom size>set to your preference.  You can also set the recycle bin there for all the HD's  Just realize that once the max size is reached the files will start being deleted (oldest first) so if you have the space you might want to leave it set to the default size

 

Good Luck
