    To disable the Recycle Bin for all users on Server 2008, you need to enable loopback processing in the Group Policy Object applied to the server.
    Go to Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > System > Group Policy and enable 'User Group Policy loopback processing mode'.

    Next, set the Recycle Bin policy. Go to User Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Explorer and enable 'Do not move deleted files to the Recycle Bin'.

    Now we want the same on Windows Server 2008, but MS changed it to

    all users on all volumes. Doing this on the default C and D drive
    would be possibly using HKU\.Default, but I don=92t know the volum
    signatures of the SAN volumes to be mounted in the future

    Anyone have any idea how to accomplish this?

    User configuration, policies, administrative templates, windows components,windows
    explorer, in the right pane "Maimum allowed Recycle Bin size" applies to
