Redirection Folder for My desktop on WIN XP

Hi All,
I have created a gpolicy that redirects the desktop, my documents of all users that belong to the domain. The clients' pcs are win XP, we have not issues with the files that are redirected via Mydocs, but with the files that are redicted through desktop. When a user deletes a file from the desktop the file does not store in the recycle bin, but it is deleted permanently. At the other side when i delete something from the My documents the file goes directly to the recycle bin. So the issue affects only the desktop's files. Is it solution to this?
I know that that this issue does not affect Win 7 and Win 2008.
Thank you.

I think the recycle bin should be synchronised with other data on logon/logoff.

If this is not the case I would look at shadow copies to allow your users to retrieve files.

Check of this artilce http://www.petri.co.il/forums/showthread.php?t=49041 is sounds like this issue is by design in Windows 2003 / XP

That is the behavior of the desktop as compdigit44 pointed out.
Make sure you have a backup setup and will let you recover a file that was previously backed up.
