Configuring Your Recycle Bin to Auto Delete

Posted on the 24 September 2012 by Babanature @proudlyonenaija

Recycle bin is a special folder that stores deleted files or folders. A recycle bin is located at the desktop. The reason for recycle bin is to retrieve mistakenly deleted files, but to me I feel that a deleted file is a deleted file so why wasting time and disk space? You can delete this file manually but at times we forget to delete it ourselves and frankly speaking, it takes up disk space.
