    Windopes doesn't do that. But then it takes loads of time and
    money and being a payee bum boy for Billy Goat before you find out.
    It makes you wonder why windopes is still the favourite OS of stupid
    winfscks.

    You can do a file delete with liveCDs.
    http://www.frozentech.com/content/livecd.php
    Try knoppix, mepis, kanotix, quantian etc
    All free, open source and done up by techies.

    Boot up on livecd,
    open a console, and then type the following
    dd if=/dev/hda of=/dev/hdb bs=10240k

    This assumes under windopes the disks are configured such that
    the first disk you are copying from is drive C (i.e. hda above)
    and second disk is drive D (i.e. hdb above).
    (The bs=10240k is just a large number to speed up copying.)

    It will stop with an error message when the last byte has been
    copied across and tries to copy past that. But don't worry about
    that, disconnect everything, put the new drive in as if normal, and
    everything should have copied across with a perfect duplicate.

    Have fun and live in peace.

    FROGERRY! FROGERRY! FROGERRY!... :)

    ...but if you are planning to frigg around forging, get your
    tech support info correct.

    You just need to boot up with LiveCD and delete
    the compressed unwanted files in recycle folder.
    Make sure you know what you plan to delete.

    That deletes some types of compressed file logs that are being kept
    without good reason and can recover sometimes gigabytes.

    The method can also fix problems where windopes can't handle
    emptying recycle bin because of foreign characters and file
    corrupts, or for moving/renaming files that show similar problems.

    Please do a scandisk or chkdsk and have zero errors
    before trying to do any of this in case your files
    are well and truly fscked in many different ways.

    You dipshit. Right-click the bin and click "Empty Recycle Bin." Just like
    the Trash in KDE or GNOME.
