Why doesn't the warning message appear when I delete files on Windows 2000?

    Why doesn't the warning message appear when I delete files on Windows 2000?
    or
    Why doesn't the warning message appear when I drag files to [Recycle Bin] even though I have checked the [Display delete confirmation dialogue]?

    This symptom has been confirmed by Microsoft and occurs when an icon is manually dragged to [Recycle Bin] under the following conditions:

    - When you uncheck the [Do not remove files to the Recycle Bin. Remove files immediately when deleted.] box,
    - When you check the [Display delete confirmation dialogue.] box.

    * When files and folders are removed with methods other than the above, the warning message appears.

    For further details, refer to the technical support information of Microsoft.
