RECYCLE BIN PROBLEMS - WHY DO I HAVE SO MUCH TRASH??? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I saw that my recycle bin had around 12,000 deleted documents the other week.  I am completely confused at why I have so many documents(note that these are documents that I didn't even delete).  I went ahead and emptied the recycle bin.  Today, I look at my recycle bin and now I have about 15,000 deleted documents. Note that once again, these are not documents that I even deleted.  This is on my work computer, and I only have a few co-workers, but it seems like some of the deleted documents are from things that they deleted.  Also, we have recently started using Skydrive and Dropbox(not sure if this is relevant, but thought it would be worth mentioning).  What I am concerned with is how this massive recycle bin is affecting the performance of my computer.

    Thanks!
