recycling bin missing

I already tried restoring the recycling bin with these methods:
Recycle Bin Icon - Allow or Prevent to Display
Desktop Icons - Add or Remove

but it still is invisible. I don't recall how i deleted it, but i can't seem to retrieve it. All google gets me is the solutions above, which don't seem to help.

any ideas?

This may work in OPTION TWO
Desktop Icons - Add or Remove
I have read one of your articles, it appears the same as mine. Try again it really should work

I had re-done it multiple times, even yesterday and shut off the PC for the night. Still didn't come back.

but now I played with the task bar and made that smaller and it came back. Weird.

External HDD keeps recycling
Hello all! I have 400GB external Seagate. I've checked the USB power options to see if this was an issue- no. They are disabled. I wonder if it isn't a time-out inherent in the drive itself? I don't want it to power down until I shut it off manually.

'view' keeps reverting to 'by tiles' in recycling bin.
this isn't so much a problem as just a curiosity. I'm running ShellFolderFix to correct the arrangement problem, and that is still working fine (the dimensions I want recycling bin to have remain the same when I click the desktop shortcut), but inexplicably, after working normally all day (view by...

Recycling old hard drives
After upgrading, I've found that I have 7 IDE hard drives ranging in size from 1 GB (!!!) to 200 GB. I'd like to get rid of them all. Is there a free reliable recylcing service out there. I've already wiped them clean (except for the 1 GB drive which won't spin up. It's from 1994).
