Can deleted file be in recyle bin on another disk, volume?

I have many volumes and on each of them there is a recycle bin. Can deleted file be in recyle bin on another disk, volume? For example if reserve space for Recycle Bin on this volume is over. Or each Recycle bin is only for it's volume?

Hello userwin,

Each volume has it's own hidden protected OS $Recycle.bin file that stores deleted items from only that volume. One volume cannot have it's $Recycle.bin file on a different volume. It must be on itself.

When you open the Recycle Bin, it lets you see all the deleted items from the $Recycle.bin files from each volume there much like a library does with included folders.

If you like, you can change the storage size of the recycle bin for each volume to fit your needs if free space is available to do so.

Recycle Bin storage size

Hope this helps,
Shawn

If so, this exactly what I need. Because of security reasons I don't want that any deleted file from one volume could be on another in recycle bin.

Can you rewrite a deleted system volume?
Is there a method to rewrite a deleted Windows 7 system volume (the small 200 MB or 100 MB partition)? I'd like to avoid doing a complete reinstall, but I have a feeling that I'm screwed.
