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'.

Disable recycle bin on Windows Server 2008
On our Windows Server 2003 machines we disabled the recycle bin (the
=93Do not move files to the Recycle Bin. Remove files immediately when
deleted=94 option, NukeOnDelete=3D1 in the HKLM registry). You delete a
file, it is gone. So no application administrator could use up
unnecessary drive space "forgetting" to empty the recycle bin. In
Windows Server 2003 it is a system wide setting.

Now we want the same on Windows Server 2008, but MS changed it to a
per user, per volume setting. We want NukeOnDelete=3D1 as default for
all users on all volumes. Doing this on the default C and D drives
would be possibly using HKU\.Default, but I don=92t know the volume
signatures of the SAN volumes to be mounted in the future.

Anyone have any idea how to accomplish this?

Hello thomvis@newsgroup,

The policy:
User configuration, policies, administrative templates, windows components,windows
explorer, in the right pane "Maimum allowed Recycle Bin size" applies to
all volumes. So it should be your's.

Best regards
