$recycle.bin Redirected Folder Cannot Delete / Clear

User’s in an environment had their Recycle Bin redirected , however whenever you tried to delete large items for the users remotely it would not let you and the size of the folder / file would show as 0KB

This is obiously a change in Windows 10 / Server 2012 how it stores these files as in Windows 7 / 2008 R2 you could delete selectged items

The work around is to delete the whole $recycle.bin Redirected Folder and this will get recreated next time the user deletes something.
