Deleting to Trash? is that a misleading message?

Post by *YossiD »

According to TC Help there is no recycle bin for deleted files, but when I perform a deletion I get a dialog that says: Deleting From: <path/filename> To Trash.

As I cannot find a Trash folder anywhere, I'm guessing that this is just a misleading message in the dialog.

Also, after deletion available storage increased so it looks like nothing was moved to "Trash."

Can someone clarify?

To trash just means that they get deleted. They aren't put in a recycle bin because Android doesn't have that.

I also found this nomenclature confusing. In the next update, perhaps this could be changed to "deleting to null" or "...dev/null" or "... to nonexistence". Because "Trash" is unfortunately an actual place in windows and mac. They should not have called it that, but they are bigger than we are.
