Reduce Recycle Bin Maximum Size

This is set fairly high by default, around more than 10% which will affect your speed if your available disk space is less. So you can try to set that to 3%, there's really no need to set it higher than that.
How to Reduce Recycle Bin Size

For Windows XP:

1) Right click on the Recycle Bin icon on the Desktop.

2. Now Under Global in the Recycle Bin properties window, move the slider and click apply.

















For Windows 7:

1) Right click on the Recycle Bin icon on the Desktop.

2) Click on Properties option.

In Windows 7 you have to change the recycle bin capacity of each hard drive partition separately. In Windows 7 there isn’t any slider bar or percentage to set. In Windows 7 we have to enter a value which we want to use as the recycle bin storage limit.




3) Select the hard drive partition and under “Custom Size: Maximum Size (MB)” enter a value according to your choice. If you want to make it go unlimited i.e. full hard drive storage, just enter a large value higher than your hard drive partition capacity. It will automatically set the value to the hard drive partition capacity.

4) Once you’ve set the value, click on OK button.

5) In some computers the change will be instant and in some they will require a restart. But restart your computer in any case to be on a safe side as you did in Windows XP above.
