    no you cant fit a dvd image in the recycle bin because it is too big therefore when asked to be deleted it is permanently deleted. Yes i fortunatly have norton systemworks

    That's probably your problem actually. System Works has a program that keeps the contents of your Recycle Bin after you delete them. It's called Norton Protected Recycle Bin. If I remember correctly, it should add an option to the context (right-click) menu of your Recycle Bin to "Empty Norton Protected Files" or something like that.
