Recycle bin for flash drives

Post by *Astoria » 2019-07-11, 15:39 UTC

Hello!
I have enabled recycle bin for all drives in my win registry.
Now, when I delete file by Explorer from removable drive, it moves to the recycle bin without confirmation.
But in TC I still have "Permanently delete" with confirmation on flash drive..
How I can use recycle bin for all drives like Explorer and without confirmation?
Best regards.
PS Sorry for my poor English.

Thank you for your reply!
This option enabled, and with key "VistaDelete=1" works good without confimation from internal hard drives. But not for removable.
I found today that the key "Win95Delete=1" provide deletion behavior like Explorer for removable drives too.
So that solved my issue.

TC looks in the registry whether a drive supports recycle bin or not. Normally flash drives do NOT support recycle bin, so TC only tries to delete to recycle bin if it is enabled via registry.
For removable drives, TC looks here:
Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\BitBucket\KnownFolder

Does this key exist on your PC? If yes, can you export the entire branch to a file and post the content here?

Keep in mind that USB flash drives do not have $Recycle.bin folders. It is true that files can be deleted and sent to the Recycle Bin from other HDD partitions. However, when you delete files from a USB flash drive, the data won't end up in the bin.
