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

Nope, that's where my problem lies. I cannot seem to edit the properties of that folder. I have taken ownership, clicked it to death but nothing seems to work - The damn thing just resets itself However everything works as it should on my system drive, so it is definitely a networked drive issue.

Or sharing, Is yours shared or not?

A little more info...

I just checked my other shares on the NAS drive and if I delete a file on them I am asked 'are you sure you want to permanently delete this file?' which means there is no recycle bin on that particular share. It is only on my 'media' share that I am asked 'are you sure you want to send this file to the recycle bin?'

I wonder if it has something to do with my MP12 library being directed to a shortcut on my system drive (which then directs it to my NAS drive) This prevents a copy of my 10K mp3s being kept to my system drive (which why I wanted to network it in the first place) It is interesting to note that the path shown in the library (above) does not show the shortcut, but only the media directory.

*edit* Just seen your last post - looks like we are thinking along the same lines
My recycle bin doesn't appear to have the share tab .... now I'm really confused.

You and me both RazMan, I'm Sorry but I'm out of ideas on this one, I guess you could keep checking back to see if someone else has got a fix for you.
It doesn't actually show up in the media player library does it?

Looks like someone created a folder named $Recycle.Bin on a Unix based NAS device...Is this true, Razman? Try re-renaming the folder?

MP12 sees the deleted files in the library until $RECYCLE.BIN is deleted. If I right-click on a file and 'open file location' it will take me to either a 'proper' or deleted file. Of course this only happens when there are identical files in a folder AND $RECYCLE.BIN, which show up as double entries in the library.

I am using a Netgear ReadyNAS Duo which I think doesn't use any Unix code - I certainly haven't introduced it to any such horrors anyway

Ok, I just renamed $RECYCLE.BIN to $CRAP which worked ok.
I then deleted a few test files - and $RECYCLE.BIN magically reappears!

The only way I can really delete them (without creating $RECYCLE.BIN in the same directory) is to [shift delete] the files - I guess I will just have to remember to do this on my mp3s in future.

Right-click on Recycle Bin on your desktop and hit Properties. Then select the drive your music files are on and select "Do not send to recycle bin". Then you will not need to worry about Shift-Del.

Not recommended if you have files you could accidentally delete. Only do this if you are very careful about deleting stuff, or have some darn good recovery software on hand!
