Recycle bin settings in Win 7 and Win 8

Could you please check and clarify why recycle bin can cover (Mapped Drive)H: drive in Win8 but in Win7 it cannot cover H: drive ?

the detail:

1. when I deleted a file in H: drive in Win8, the deleted file could be found in recycle bin.
2. but when deleted a file in H: drive in Win7, the deleted file could NOT be found in recycle bin.

I have tested in several Win7 PC and Win8 PC, the result was as above described.

Please advice.

As far as I know the Recycle Bin has never covered network drives in any version of Windows, unless you have redirected one of your user profile folders (e.g. Documents) to this network share.

Do you have folder redirection enabled on the Windows 8 PC, but not on the Windows 7 PC?

Do you have folder redirection applied on the Windows 8 machines?

I just tried on few Windows 8 machines and could not find the deleted files on the recycle bin

the only explain that I could think about is folder redirection

Lior is correct. When you redirect your documents to your network drive and delete there, it can be found in the recycle bin, else it cannot (true for various windows versions).

Yes, it is folder redirection to user profiles.

Apply the same folder redirection policy to the Windows 7 machines and this should then allow you to use the Recycle Bin.
