Mostly people living in a joint family own a shared workspace that is being used by more than one member of the family. In some cases people use the same user profile on the computer but there are some that create separate user profiles of each individual on their Windows machine. While creating multiple user accounts is a good idea but managing all those can be a problem.
This problem can be worsened if you are a network admin and have many user profiles created on a single computer. Each user account has got its own set of directories and files like the Recycle Bin. So suppose if someone does not delete its data from the recycle bin, it will consume the shared space of others too. Continue reading “Forcefully Empty Recycle Bin of All Users same time”
