Your users are connecting to the share 'TI' and are then deleting
folders & files. You are telling the recycler to put the deleted item


This means that anything the user deletes will go into that path, '%u'
is the users name and '%m' is the clients Netbios name

So if user 'rowland' on the PC 'win7-pc', in the domain 'DOMAIN',
deletes the file 'test1.txt', it will end up here:

ls -la /opt/recycle/recycle_sistemas/DOMAIN\rowland/win7-pc/

-rw-r--r-- 1 DOMAIN\rowland DOMAIN\domain users   14 Aug  6 10:06

NOTE: if you only want the username instead of 'DOMAIN\username', use
'%U' instead of '%u'
