Long ago I used Norton Protected Recycle Bin [from Norton Utilities] for earlier Windows.
Is there a free or pay-for product for Windows 7 that will act as NPRB acted?
NPRB was resident, "extended" the regular Windows recycle bin -- deleted folders and/or file stayed and stayed and stayed until either finally overwritten or emptied from NPRB.

solved! Norton Protected Recycle Bin replaced  :)  [title]
I installed Network Recycle Bin Tool, which "extends" the normal recycle bin [even if cleared] by copying files into a designated protected area.
What happened is that I cleared Windows Recycle Bin without looking in it 2-3 hours before I realized that I had accidentally deleted Security installs folder on my Ddrive.  NRBT simply copies files into its bin until I clear them, or, until room runs out, then oldest gets ousted first.
