Dump the trash
« on: Sep 01, 2019, 09:15 AM »
You probably already know this but, last evening I emptied the Trash folder on the T6 while it was connected to wifi.  This morning I discovered the Trash folder on my PC is empty as well. Not a happy camper, things lost I was using.....
Must remember to turn off wifi next time.

I'm somewhat opposite, as I never use trash or recycle. When I delete something, I want it permanently deleted right away. As such I use CCleaner throughout the day, and I constantly empty out trash folders in my email, etc.

You could try a file recovery program, such as Recuva.

Thanks for the suggestion, it succeeded in finding 4 files, all a year old.

I'm glad that worked out.

You know, I remember Ace often joking of using the Recycle Bin to store his important files. Lol

It worked so well I promptly uninstalled it.  There must be a better way, and I don't mean recovery.  I love my smart phone but sometimes it really has it's downsides.
