When a Windows NT Advanced Server running Services for Macintosh (SFM) creates a Macintosh volume, SFM automatically creates a Network Trash Folder directory in the new Macintosh volume. This Network Trash Folder is required in SFM, and should not be removed.

The Network Trash Folder is used to temporarily store files in a Macintosh volume that a user has thrown in the Trash. When the user empties the Trash, the file will actually be deleted.

The Network Trash Folder cannot be removed while SFM is running.

The default Macintosh permissions may not be changed. Any changes you attempt will not take affect as long as SFM is running.

If SFM is stopped, the Network Trash Folder will be removed. It will be replaced when you reboot your computer. (SFM may be shut off in the Services Control Panel by stopping the File Server For Macintosh service.)

NOTE: There is no Network Trash Folder in the MS UAM Volume, which is created by default when SFM is installed on an NTFS volume.
