JSI Tip 5647. When you delete a large file in Windows 2000, you are prompted to confirm a FOLDER deletion?

When you delete a large file, you receive:

Confirm Folder Delete
The folder <File Name> is too big for the Recycle Bin.
Do you want to permanently delete it?

When the file is too big for the Recycle Bin, Windows generates the Confirm Folder Delete dialog box, even though it will only delete the referenced <File Name>.
