Is there a Global Tab for Windows 7 Recycle Bin

Problem.  Can't see files in he recycle bin from drives other than C:

All files deleted from the Root Drive C: can be seen in the Recycle Bin.

Having Multiple Drives (local and networks), if you delete a file it goes to the recycle bin, but you can 't see.

Steps taken...  I can see all of my drives' recycle bin when i change view setting to show hidden files.


What I can't do - not sure I should be able to do - is change the attribute settings on the recycle bin's to deselect hide file.  Maybe that is what's missing.

Any suggestions.
