Delete to Recycle Bin

Recommended Posts

This might be difficult to manage, apart from the change in philosophy due to no space being reclaimed (think of all the repetitive posts there would be here!).

 

An average user, if there is one, especially a new user, could well have several thousands of files in several gb's dumped to the recycler. And again when CC is run again. And again.... And the space used grows. And how would that average user know what to restore in the event of some mishap? I guess the deleted files could be saved in a folder with a life of say seven days (cleaned by CC).

 

There would probably be as many problems restoring deleted files on top of live files, especailly a folder full of files if it were done in one splodge, as there would be losing them.

When you run the registry cleaner, it prompts you if you want to backup changes made to the registry. If that works, then perhaps adding a prompt to delete to the recycle bin would work just as well.

 

I've also seen one other suggestion, that only files older than a certain number of days will be deleted from the recycle bin. This means the space will be reclaimed eventually, but it gives a chance for the user to recover the files.

 

As for restoring files from the recycle bin, that's Microsofts problem. :P
