How to disable Recycle Bin in Windows 7
If you feel that the files that you deleted are not at all useful to you or you do not need them in future, then you can disable Recycle Bin so that some space in hard disk is saved. Other wise Recycle Bin occupies some hard disk space for the deleted files to hold. Let us see how to disable Recycle Bin in Windows 7so that the files and folders are permanently deleted and there will not be any chance to recover them.
There are two ways to disable Recycle Bin in Windows 7. One method is through the Registry editor and other method is direct. Let us see the two methods.
Disabling Recycle Bin in Windows 7 through RegistryFirst click on Start button and then type "Regedit" in the search box in the Start menu. Now you will see the Registry Editor window as shown below.
Once Registry is open, go to the following Key.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\BitBucketNow modify/create the value data type and values as given below.
Data Type: DWORD
Value Name: NukeOnDelete
If the Value = 0, it means use Recycle Bin
if the value is set to 1, it means Permanently delete a file
Now exit the Registry and reboot your computer. Once this is done, your files will be deleted permanently without going to Recycle Bin.
There is another simple way without using the Registry to disable Recycle Bin in Windows 7. Let us see that method also.
Disabling Recycle Bin in Windows 7 without using Registry
First right-click on Recycle Bin icon on the desktop, and select "Properties" from the drop down menu.Once you select 'Properties' from the drop down menu, you will see the Recycle Bin Properties Dialog.

Without using Registry - it did not work. Deleted files still show up in Recycle folder.
With using Registry - there is no entry 'Bitbucket'
Where to find \BitBucket?

|When you have multiple drives, there is a value for each one, so you have to iterate through the keys under .../BitBucket/Volume as described by the LastEnum REG_MULTI_SZ value. Creating a single value as described won't work.|
