Folder Redirection deleting items

I have Folder Redirection setup on several machines and sometimes when my users delete a file it completely bypasses the Recycle Bin. The files are not large and I believe they are typically on the desktop when the user deletes them.  Is there a setting I need to set to keep this from happening?

Are these "Redirections" involving locations on Servers, i.e. did you redirect the Desktop to a Folder on a Server?  If so they will not go to the Recycle Bin on the workstation since the File is physically located on a Server.  Files on Servers deleted on Workstations never go to any Recycle Bin unless you add third party software to the server that is designed to handle this.

Not the answer I was hoping for but one I was kind of expecting. Thanks, do you happen to know of any good 3rd party programs?

Have you considered Server 2003's Volume Shadow Copy.  This would allow users to restore to any version (last 100) that was made depending on the schedule you setup. Be careful, depending on the size of your Folders, the speed of the platters, and the speed of the Server you can easily create a "bod down" effect while the schedule runs.  I set most of my sites up for 6am, 12pm, 6pm.
