When I use the Clean function in the Recycle-Bin, it deletes up to 506 entries.
I have 20k plus files in the recycle bin and want to 'clean' the recycle-bin out.
These files were deleted on a Mac and are all labeled .DS_Store
This means I have to click and wait 40 times before the recycling bin is emptied, this is not very (system) user friendly.

Hate to pile on, but while installing the Black Armor 220 (its a replacement for a 6 month old Maxtor Central Axis that died), I had "other problems" with the recycle bin.
first, there are scant details on how this feature works in the user guide. it says to go read the on-line help, but that link is dead on my machine. nothing happens when i click it. there's an address pointing the server then to recycleBin then some other stuff. but nothing comes up. So here I am, googling for help
The Undelete and Delet buttons seem clear enough. but what is the "delete after (3 days) Clean" supposed to do?
The popup warning (obviously not proofread by anyone) says " Are you sure you want to delete files which are older than match the condition you set? If yes, click ok and then the files you select will destroy permanently from NAS. Otherwise, click Cancel to cancel the action." I suppose i'll find out in 3 days. It could mean...
a) any file over 3 days old will be deleted right now. or
b) any file i have flagged (actually, i don't have any flagged at the moment, so this is another bug), will be deleted 3 days from now. or
c) maybe i don't even have to flag the files...could it be that you don't have to check anything in order for the Clean button to work? you just click the clean button and files that were deleted more than 3 days ago will be permanently deleted? [this conflicts with what the previous posters have posted, so it may be a bad guess.] what i wouldn't give for a few lines of documentation.
thats in advance, anyone.
until then, i better not use these recycle bin feature.

I understood the 3 days to mean any deleted files deleted for more that three days then remove from bin.
My latest news is I have disabled the recycle bin but I still cannot get into the manager page. Also 10% of my file space is now permanently gobbled up with deleted files and I still get messages that the bin is full!!
btw Seagates fix is send the unit back to them!!
I wish I'd known about the recycle bin problems BEFORE enabling it :-(
Aart from that the unit is great...

if you can first backup the data on the share with recycle bin problem, you can delete the share. it will also remove the recycle bin data. and then you can create a share again and restore the previous backup data. it's not good method, but at least you can fix the manager issue
if the recycle bin is enabled, the deleted files occupy the same volume space. thus, you can always have the deleted files in the recycle bin. but if the volume is full, you can no more put new files into the share.

A fair bit of work (with over 100gig of company files on the nas drive) and something to do very carefully with peace and quiet out of office hours :-)
