Second Stage Recycle Bin

Hi, I am curious if Office 365 SharePoint Online has a second stage recycle bin.  

I have read the descreption at this link:

When I go into the Site Collection Recycle Bin, I do not see an option for Second Stage Recycle Bin.  I am a site collection administrator on all our site collections.  I have an end user who deleted a file, and then deleted it from the recycle bin.  The file in question does not show up in the site collection recycle bin, so I am trying to get to the second stage recycle bin referenced by Microsoft in the link above.



i think i may have answered my own question.  from the site collection recycle bin, i scrolled to the very bottom of the page, and there was a link saying "can't find what you're looking for?  check the second-stage recycle bin."  when i clicked on that, i was then successfully taken to the true second-stage recycly bin, where i found the deleted file in question and was able to restore it.

for anyone experiencing this issue, there is (as of 7/20/15) still a second stage recycle bin that is called just that.  just scroll to the bottom of the page to find the link to it.
