Delete the recycle bin folder at DOS level

Delete the recycled directories (each partition has its own recycled directory) Export [HKLM\Software\ Microsoft\Windows\ CurrentVersion\explorer\ BitBucket] when the bin is empty,
and import it after deleting the directories (contains the # of files in the bin) Export
USER\Software\ Classes\CLSID\ {645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\ DefaultIcon] when
the bin is empty, and import it after deleting the directories (controls which icon [full/empty bin] is
displayed) Note:  I used to delete the recycled directories under Windows 98. I do not know whether it works or not under Windows 2000 and XP.

Have DOS execute a batch file when restarting in DOS (98)

In the Windows folder, right-click on ExitToDos > Properties > Program > Advanced > Specify a
new MS DOS configuration. Add your entry to the autoexec.bat section for MS-DOS mode.
