    Right click on Recycle Bin and make sure "Do not move files to Bin. Remove
    immediately" is not checked.

    If you move cash into recycle can, you may lose profits.

    Is that why you are broke?
    You've been hiding your money in the trash can instead of under the
    How many years did it take you to realize it wasn't a very good place to
    hide things?

    Well, the good thing is you can rest easy knowing all your valuables are
    safely hidden in a landfill.

    Things don't stay in the recycle bin forever. A maximum size has been
    set for it (it's adjustable, it's generally some percentage of your
    disk), when it exceeds that size, the oldest files are deleted to make
    room for newer ones. Once that happens, the deleted files are gone for

    Sometimes it's worthwhile to empty the recycle bin. The recycle bin is
    not supposed to operate as a backup folder.

    949gb cache? Are you sure?

    If you're positively sure that you want to delete a file permanently,
    hold down the shift key while you press the delete key and the file
    won't go into the recycle bin.
