Windows 7: Need Recycle Bin Fullness Gadget

Need Recycle Bin Fullness Gadget

Hello,

Many times I go to empty my Recycle Bin, only to find that there is only 1 item in there.

Is there any Gadget, Widget, or Gizmo that will show the Recycle Bin graphic in a way that tells if it has a couple of files, many files, or a lot of files? I know that this is all relative, but some sort of gauge would be helpful.

Thanks for any input and advice you can give me!

Does anyone remember when the recycle bin was "Empty", "Has Files", "Full". In other words a three stage recycle bin? I'd love to have it back.

Or was I secondary smoking exotic herbal cigarettes and imagining it?

I'd rep you for that A Guy but I need to spread the love!!
