How can I delete something from a network drive and have it go to my Recycle
Bin on my computer instead of permanently deleting it? Right now, I just cut
the document and paste it onto my desktop and put in the Recycle Bin that
way. Isn't there a better way of doing this? Thanks!

Hi,

You don't. It's not a local file, and if you have sufficient priviledges on
the network drive, then deleting the file will do just that - delete it. The
Recycle Bin only applies to the local system.
