The patch can very easily be made to work with 2.2.2. Just inspect the
few rejects, and you'll see the obvious way to apply them.
There is a difference between Windows' recycle bin and the Network
recycle bin. Windows only uses the recycle bin when deleting a file
through the GUI (Windows Explorer), and then only for local drives.
However, the Network recycle bin will preserve every deleted file. If
you have an application that happens to make many temporary files on a
Samba share, your Network recycle bin will fill very quickly, and with
The best option would be to patch Windows Explorer, and not Samba. Could
someone send me the source for Explorer, please? :-)
