when I deleted items my bin would keep them till I completly deleted them form the bin, but now, I delete them today and tomorrow they are not there. I have had a look at the bin preferences and the 'delete files aoutomatically' is not able. what is the problem? why is my bin doing this now? thank you
This might be a solutions to your posted problem with the recycle-bin.
You can change the global configuration to your recycle bin in such a way items are removed immediately after being deleted in the recycle bin. Secondly you can change Display delete configuration dialog box, to be inactive meaning when you delete items you don't get that dialog box confirming delete.
So try this:
Change the global configuration to move items to the recycle bin after delete and to not remove items to the recycle bin. To do:
Right-Click the Recycle bin and select properties.
In the property dialog box, click the global tab, and do the following:
Under use one settings for all drives (I.e if the radio button is selected), clear the check where you'll see 'Do not move items to the recycle bin. Remove files immediately when deleted.
If each drive is configured independently; Click on the tab with the drive name and do the following:
Clear the check where you'll see 'Do not move items to the recycle bin. Remove files immediately when deleted.
Thank you for your advice. I am afraid I had tried that one before and the bin is still deleting by itself. It seems to be deleting the files while the computer is off, becouse if I send stuff to the bin now it will remain there till I shut down. If I restart is when the stuff in the bin has disappeared. Any ideas why is this happening?
