    Selecting this option creates a Recycle Bin for this shared folder.

    Restrict the access of Recycle Bin to administrators only for now

    Enable write-only access on FTP connection

    Selecting this option prevents non-administrator users from viewing and downloading the content of this folder with an FTP connection.
