Format:RECYCLE [/D /E /Q /P] [drives ...]

 

drivesLocal fixed and removable (non CD-ROM / DVD) drives

 

 

Usage:

 

If you don't specify any drives, RECYCLE will display the recycle bin status, or if /D is specified delete everything in the recycle bin for all local drives.

 

RECYCLE will empty the recycle bin for an entire drive; there is no way to specify individual files.

 

Options:

 

/DEmpty the recycle bin for the specified drive(s).

 

/ESuppress all non-fatal error messages, such as "File Not Found."  Fatal error messages, such as "Drive not ready," will still be displayed. This option is most useful in batch files.

 

/PPrompt the user to confirm each delete operation (at least one drive must be specified).

 

/QDon't display the name of the recycle bin(s). This option is most often used in batch files.
