After deleted, the files are transferred to a folder named "Recycle Bin". If needed or deleted by accident, these deleted files can be recovered from the Recycle Bin. This is the advantage of this design. But it also has a disadvantage. If the deleted files contain personal privacy and important documents and the Recycle Bin is not emptied timely, those deleted files may be taken advantage of by other people. If we want to delete files completely, we need to empty Recycle Bin that stores the deleted files, which seems a little troublesome. For the sake of convenience, users do some setting to the Recycle Bin, which makes files deleted directly instead of being stored in Recycle Bin. The procedures are following.
Right click "Recycle Bin" and click
"Properties" in the popup menu. Then select
"Global" and select "Do not move files to the Recycle Bin.
Remove files immediately when deleted". Or set the maximum size of Recycle Bin
as 0. Then click "OK". Later, if deleted, the deleted files
will be removed immediately instead of being moved to Recycle Bin. And others
can not see the important deleted files from the Recycle Bin.
Advantages and disadvantages
This setting brings
users convenience and the security for deleted files, though. It has some
disadvantages. After users delete files accidentally, the deleted files are
removed directly from the system and it is hard to recycle them from the Recycle
Bin. So this way is not suggested. The security of data may be guaranteed if we
empty the Recycle Bin timely. However, even if files are deleted directly or the
Recycle Bin is emptied, the deleted files could be recovered unless they are
overwritten. What we need is some professional data recovery software, and then
the deleted files can be recovered.
