Windows 7: Why don't all files go to the recycle bin?

Why don't all files go to the recycle bin?

I think that it is that Windows prompts me to move items from the recycle bin, whilst it deletes them permanently from a mapped drive. So if I delete a file on a mapped drive, why doesn't it move the items to the server's recycle bin?

I accidentally deleted files on another server which has a mapped drive.

What you describe is by design. Visit the following site and review the post from "lostxtsol" for a workaround;

Files deleting over the Network /share drive is not going to the recycle bin it permanently delete the file but deleting from local drive is normaly going to recycle Bin !

Recycle does not show files to be deleted
If I delete files and then go to the recycle bin, I can not see any of the files. Therefore if I want to restore a particular file I can not. If I choose to empty the bin, I get I confirmation to delete the correct number of files, but they are not visible. Any suggestions?
