How to set security on your Recycle Bin Properties?

It is very useful to manage the security of Recycle Bin properties because by default everyone can change the recycle bin settings using windows default rights. If you want to restrict your users to modify these settings, simply edit the "Permissions for BitBucket" and set the read only rights for all users. Using windows registry editor you can set the Recycle Bin rights for all user.

Here select the user name or group "Everyone" from the list under the "Group or user names" category and then allow read only permissions for selected user under the "Permissions for everyone" section.

Now click on Apply button to save these settings and again click on Ok button to finish the process.
