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 !

Deleted files not going to Recycle Bin. Pls advice.
Hi. The Recycle Bin properties (icon > right click) show allocated bin space for the different drives. But deleted files never go to bin and are permanently deleted. There is also no confirmation before deletion although option is checked. Thanks for help.

I've got a shared drive on my PC, and I'm trying to sync it using Offline Files. The process keeps failing because of the Recycle Bin file, $RECYCLE.BIN. Normal folders on other drives sync fine. Does anyone know how to exclude $RECYCLE.BIN from Offline Files?
