My Recycle Bin - what's going on??

I'm using Windows XP Pro and I recently deleted a file by accident. No problem, right, just go to my Recycle Bin and retrieve the deleted file. Well, the file is not there, the trash can is totally empty.
So I went into an old folder and deleted some old xls and doc files. Rechecked the Recycle Bin - nothing there!!!
I don't see any setting which empties the trash bin automatically so I'm wondering what is going on.

Anyone have any ideas??

Right click on the Recycle Bin. Select Properties. Is the box checked next to "Do not move files to the Recycle Bin?"
