Windows 7: Upgrade Woes

Upgrade Woes

I just upgraded my wife's PC from Vista Premium to 7 Premium. We both have our documents on a mapped drive on a 2003 server (Active Directory). She went to delete some files and could not. When she does try, it asks if she's sure she wants to send this file to the recycle bin (?), if you answer yes, it says she has to give herself permission to do this! In the recycle bin properties, it shows the mapped drive and allocates space to it. Normally, from what I've read, sending network drive files to the recycle bin doesn't happen. My machine is setup the same way as far as mapped drives and libraries, but mine is a clean install. How can I remove the mapped drive from her recycle bin? As a work-around, I've set that one drive to not recycle, but to delete right away. It still asks if you're sure, but does actually delete the file. It's treating the mapped drive just like a real drive.

You will need to take ownership of the files if they are leftover from Vista.

I have ownership of the files on \\server\mydocs, the problem is, they don't have permission to go into my wife's recycle bin. It says, you need permission from domainname\herusername! Once I say to delete and not recycle, she can delete files. If the mapped drive wasn't included in her recycle bin's properties, there would be no problem.
