Windows 7: How can I stop MP12 seeing my recycle bin?

How can I stop MP12 seeing my recycle bin?

I have my MP3 library on a NAS drive and things are working quite well except when I delete any files, they are still being 'seen' in my recycle bin(which is on the root of the same directory of the NAS drive), giving double entries until it is emptied. It sees the recycle bin as a folder named $RecycleBin.
Is there any way of preventing this? ie excluding it from my library directory list but still allowing me to keep the recycle bin.

Hello,

You can remove Recycle Bin from the library if you wish by clicking Manage Libraries from under Organize in MWP.

Hope this helps,
~JK

That only gives me the option to add locations and not exclude them. I think the problem is that the recycle bin is not on the root of my share - it is in the library's directory. Therefore it is always 'seen' unless I move it (if that is even possible).

ie. My present location is \\READYNAS\media\music\jim_morrisson\american_prayer and my MP12 library is looking at \\READYNAS\media\music

After deletion the recycle bin always appears in the 'music' directory and not in the root, 'media'

I do not quite understand. Below the Add button is a Remove button.

If this is what you are talking about, (first pic) Check to see if this box is unchecked (second pic) , check it and apply.

@ JK - Yes but I only have that one location in my library so if I delete it .....

@ derekimo - Nope, I've got my folder view settings at default so that's not it..... But if I tick/untick 'show hidden files, folders & drives' I can flash my recycle bin on & off on the root of my system drive!

Maybe something to do with network drive settings? ..... erm
I've just noticed that the $RECYCLE.BIN on the NAS drive is not greyed out or locked as in the root version - it looks just like a regular folder and is just as editable. I have even tried taking ownership of the RB's folder, removing the 'read only' status, ticking the 'hidden' box and all sorts of other stuff .... no luck, it just won't budge except I can delete it.

At last, an excuse to use the snipping tool!

I know the snipping tool is great. Here's what mine looks like, if you check that box "Hidden" , then apply, and OK, and see if that does what you want.
