It sure would be possible, but I don't plan to do this in the near future. I put it on my list though, thanks!

Ok, I'm did some research, and it looks like you won't see a Recycle Bin integrated in T4 anytime soon.
However, you can easily access the Recycle Bin via menu Tools/Recycle Bin...

I found some info that _may_ re-energze the admin's desire to attempt to add recycle bin into XYplorer:

How to programmatically use the Recycle Bin

If the admin uses or is familiar with MS VC++, he shouldn't have any trouble following this example, and thus will hopefully integrate a recycle bin into XYplorer soon.

Yeah..

I'm quite surprised to encounter that my beloved XYPlorer does not display the Recycle Bin in the left Panel.. :?

What a miss.. :(

Why there is still no Recycle Bin in the 5.5 version?? :evil:

XY actually does show the Recycle Bin, but only in internal format...see these other threads about it:

Still spending WAY TOO much time here! But it's such a pleasure helping XY be a treasure!
(XP on laptop with touchpad and thus NO mouse!) Using latest beta vers when possible.

Just in case someone missed them, there are a few options you have access to from XY, under the menu Tools:
- Open Recyle Bin : open RB with Explorer
- Empty Recycle Bin : does what it says, after the usual confirmation
- Recycle Bin Stats : will tell how many items & how much space are on your RB

The Recycle Bin is a feature of the OS. It has been there even before XY was born. :)

Okay, of course I know what you want. But because of what I just said other things get my attention first.

Personally, I beginning to think with the Tools listed (one of which I'd forgotten about as I don't go into RB that often) there is adequate or enough support for RB currently...but...if one could do a preview of files in RB with "true" file names to find the one that you wanted to recover, that would be an improvement, though I can do it now with a tiny bit of effort.

Yeah I know that..

But it still surprised me a lot that this among the best File Explorer I've ever seen did not show it in the TREE! :?

Sorry to mention this.. But even the freeware A43 got Recycle Bin in the display.. 8)

I feel so ackward and frustrated to see whenever I want to confirm a permanent deletion of the Recycle Bin I have to open a separate window thru that menu! :(

It really turned me off somehow.. :cry:

[quote="aimy]... whenever I want to confirm a permanent deletion of the Recycle Bin ...[/quote]What you mean by that? That the Bin is empty?

Err.. sorry for my bad English..

The correct one would be..
A permanent deletion of files inside the Recycle Bin 8)

That means I really need the Recycle Bin to show up as part of the XYplorer.. :)

Thank you.
