Default Weird issue with multiple recycle bin contents - Server 2008

Hi, I have a curious issue on our Windows 2008 R2 Standard servers. On each drive there is a $Recycle.bin folder as I would expect, but inside each of these there are multiple folders each called Recycle Bin, each one containing what looks like the exact same files. This is causing confusion to the end users.

Can anyone tell me how I can configure the recycle bin so that there is only one folder containing one set of files, for each drive- or better still, a single recycle bin for ALL drives. ???

I'vge tried googling this and couldn't find any answers at all- maybe no one has come across this issue?

I'm not sure if you can. I'll look too!

Thanks, any idea how I can configure it to only show the one folder though- rather than a whole list of copies of the same folder? If I could do that it would be a start at least.
