What type of external drive do you have ? All this while, I thought that if you delete files from an external storage, the files do not go through the recycle bin... they just vanish... or do you have a different "tarsh can" ?
To whomever thought of the "trash can" file for PC'S, I would like to give them one big hug!
About a week ago, I started one huge project-to get all of my 340 or so compact discs, onto my external hard drive. No easy task. First I have to rip them onto my music library, on my PC'S hard drive. Then move the respective music files to my external hard drive. The last step, to conserve memory, delete these music files from my PC's hard drive.
I had completed this process for about 90 + CD'S.
Then,I thought I'd really blew it. I somehow deleted all of these music files, from my external hard drive.
About eight hours later, I had to re-start my PC; when lo and behold-there, in all it's glory, was my PC's trashcan icon, full of some files. Than I thought-my goodness-those must be ALL of the music files, I'd thought I'd earlier deleted from my PC's external hard drive. Of course, I had my PC sent all those music files back to my PC's external hard drive.
I don't even want to think about how many, many hours of work I'd just avoided.
So-To everybody out there-If you thought you've deleted some very important files, take a deep breath, ;go to your PC's desktop; and click on the trashcan icon-chances are, those files will be right there.
My question: does anybody know who came up with this simple, yet brilliant idea-the trashcan file folder?
