When I open my Windows 7 recycle bin, it displays a full family tree (directory), and appears to display ALL files and not just deleted files. This does not seem correct to me. Can you identify what files should be displayed and what structure (family tree (directory). As an experiment I opened a folder in the recycle bin labelled Desktop on the directory to display numerous icons, which appeared to be all those on the normal Desktop. I selected the Google Earth icon (which I knew i could download again if it deleted from my real desktop) right clicked and deleted it. I then closed the recycle bin, and examined my normal desktop only to find my Google Earth icon had disappeared. I then of course downloaded Google Earth again. I have come to the conclusion that either I do not know how the recycle bin is supposed to work or my software is faulty.
