 How may I display Recycle Bin?

Am interested in opening the Recycle Bin when disk space becomes low to
allow users to delete some/all of its contents.
How do you do this?

Thanks

Mike,

The 'Recycle Bin' is just another folder on your drive. You can obtain
the location of it via the Registry (See Registry source at site link
below). It is then just a matter of opening a FileList (or Listbox, if
you prefer) at that folder and writing the code for deletion. Beware,
don't show the "desktop.ini" file to the user, as Windows needs it for
tracking.
HTH's.
