With hard drives now reaching 1TB, 10% seems excessive for a maximum Recycle Bin size.

Confirm the Recycle Bin does not contain anything that should be restored.

Empty the Recycle Bin.

Right-Click on the Recycle Bin icon.

Left Click on Properties on the popup menu.

Select the Configure drives independently option.

Click on each of the drive tabs.

Move the slider to adjust the Maximum size of the Recycle Bin (percent of drive).

After each of the drives have been configured:

Click the Apply button.

Click the OK button.
