Here is a special Matt Brooks tip. He was asked if there was any way to empty the Recycle Bin from an app run from NAL. He gazed at the ceiling for about twenty seconds, seized his mouse, and this is what he came up with. As with everything from Matt, it isn't just an answer ("Yes."), it's a full-on solution complete with an AOT, AXT, and a Bonus Tip. All neatly packaged in the emptybin.zip file below.
Empty the Recycle Bin
This is pretty easy (on non-NTFS drives.) All you have to do is create an application that will delete *.* from c:\recycled.
I've made an AOT and AXT for you. (See the emptybin.zip file.)
Open the Recycle Bin
Want to open the recycle bin from within NAL?
In the same ZIP file you'll find a TXT file called Open Recycle Bin to help you do this.
