Maybe the slider's all the way to 0%



"How to Resize the Recycle Bin: By default, the maximum size of the Recycle Bin on your hard drive is 10 percent of the size of the hard drive. Example, a 10GB hard drive has a maximum Recycle Bin size of 1GB - that's a lot of space to use up for files you've decided to delete. If you delete an file that would cause the Recycle Bin to exceed that size, Windows will warn you with an error message.

You may decide either to raise this limit or lower it, either of which you can do by following this procedure:

* You need to right-click the Recycle Bin icon on the desktop, and then choose Properties from the shortcut menu. You will see the Properties dialog box of the Recycle Bin.

* The Properties dialog box contains a Global tab, plus a tab for each hard drive on your system. If you want to change the maximum size setting for all the hard drives at once, set the new maximum size of the Recycle Bin (as a percentage of total drive space) by moving the slider on the Global tab. Then click OK. Skip the remaining steps.

* You may want to reset the maximum Recycle Bin size for only a single hard drive, and leaving the others the same, you need to select the Configure Drives Independently radio button on the Global tab.

* Click on the tab for the drive you want to change. Set the slider on that tab. Then click OK."
