Change the Size of Recycle Bin Storage in Windows 8
Edited by Lukward Thomason, Amanda, Eng
Hi, you are watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to change the size of recycle bin storage on Windows 8 computers. Make sure to empty your recycle bin before proceeding, because changing the storage size may permanently delete the files.
First, right-click on the "Recycle Bin" icon
Once the "Recycle Bin Properties" window opens, we need to select each disk separately.
Let's select "Local Disk", C
Change the "Custom Size"
It's determined by MB. For example, ours is "7150". This is roughly 7GB, or a little more, actually. But we can change this by simply inputting any number of MB that we desire our recycle bin to have in storage before it deletes the files it contains.
We can also click "Don't move files to the Recycle Bin
Remove files immediately when deleted." The same thing can be done with any other disks.
Let's select "Local Disk", D
It has a different capacity, because the overall disk capacity is bigger.
Set the numbers for each disk according to preference, then click "OK"
This concludes our tutorial on how to change the size of recycle bin storage on Windows 8 computers
