Can I view a file from my recycle bin to make a decision on whether I want to delete it for good or restore it? :tazz:

as far as I know, the best you can do is to open the recycle bin and view the file details. If you are unsure about it, best go ahead and restore it then make the decision.

You need to drag it from recycle bin to look at it, then you can put it back in and empty if you dont want to keep it.

you can delete something for good by pressing SHIFT then DELETE which deletes it from the computer. If stuff is already in the recycle bin, make a note of where it is, restore it and then SHIFT DELETE it.

But obviously you all know that if you delete something, its not ACTUALLY gone from the hard disk until new data takes its place, its still in the registry and on the computer and is still retrievable, so for those of u with p*** on their PC, get creating those TAX word documents! :tazz:
