Purge error for WF History and recycle fill-up

I had a great response to my question on how to quickly delete WF history in this post

 

I have 3 follow-up questions

 

1- When I go to NintexWorkflowHistory and select Purge items.  I get a correlation ID error  Upon further review it does appear to delete about 7,500 each time I select Purge Items, but no more  Somewhat of a drag when I have 50,000 History items.  Any idea for the error ?  Note I tried another list and same thing - i get an error and it deletes 7,500 at a time.

 

2-A casualty of doing the above is then my Recycle Bin fills up !  How do I mass delete the Recycle Bin ?

 

3-How do I prevent WF History getting created in the first place ?  When I go to the Site Workflow and select WF Settings there is no option to prevent a WF history under the drop-down called "History List"
