View Full Version : How many items do you have in your trash?

November 4th, 2010, 02:11 PM
Just a curiosity I've recently developed. To see if I'm normal or not! LOL:)

Zero. What's a trash?

November 4th, 2010, 02:18 PM
23. :)

November 4th, 2010, 02:22 PM
Zero. But because of your klutzmanship I can't play.

But I don't care. I didn't want to play your silly game anyway! :p

November 4th, 2010, 02:31 PM
0, I almost always use shift+delete.

Come on, you're not just a little bit curious as to how much trash everyone has? LOL

I think trash cans are rubbish bins.

November 4th, 2010, 02:35 PM
Zero.....I delete , I don't send to trash.

November 4th, 2010, 02:38 PM
Does this thread only include ubuntu? Or could I do Windows too? :P

November 4th, 2010, 02:41 PM
Zero. What's a trash?

Yip, I use the delete thingy with nautilus elementary... Bypass the trash...

I thought you sent it all to this forum? :)

November 4th, 2010, 02:42 PM
Oh dear... 116 items... That is all left over because I now use gnome-terminal for all my file browsing needs. :) So I use rm, not nautilus. Actually I take that back. It turns out gedit trashes stuff, not deletes stuff. My bad. :)

Still 116 items.

BRB dumping trash onto your profile. :popcorn:

November 4th, 2010, 06:45 PM
For most stuff I do a shift-delete to bypass the recycling bin. If I do delete stuff to the bin, I clear it out daily.

November 4th, 2010, 06:55 PM
Add me to the list of those that don't use trash. I delete everything I don't want.

November 4th, 2010, 07:02 PM
First thing I turn off is saving to the trash in the install and root trash.

November 4th, 2010, 07:20 PM
Nil, I delete not trash. One has to with state secrets doesn't one??!!

None: I have the delete option set up.

November 4th, 2010, 07:58 PM
Zero option please. I directly send them to heaven instead of saving them for judgment day with Shift + Del.

November 4th, 2010, 08:01 PM
Zero, I empty it as I delete, I have never understood the use of a recicle bin, if you want to delete you delete, not move to another folder, I dont take the point.

November 4th, 2010, 08:19 PM
Yes, Windows does count

November 4th, 2010, 08:27 PM
I forgot 0 OMG I am such a clutz.

Yeah, jerk...oh well, I put 1-50.

November 4th, 2010, 08:29 PM
Another who bypasses the trash. 0.

November 4th, 2010, 08:31 PM
I forgot 0 OMG I am such a clutz.

i think 1-25 in this poll includes 0. :D

November 4th, 2010, 08:34 PM
Added 0 -1 , odd, I couldn't just add 0 :confused:

November 4th, 2010, 11:49 PM
Man, I'm glad you asked. I haven't even thought about the trash since forever. I had 46,030 items, totalling 7.2 GB in there. :lolflag:

November 4th, 2010, 11:52 PM
Zero. I don't know why, but it bugs me having items in the trash.

November 5th, 2010, 12:02 AM
Zero.http://www.mikesplanet.net/forums/images/smilies/cool.png I added the delete option in my right-click menu a while back. Since then, nothing goes in the can.

November 5th, 2010, 12:26 AM
+1 for Clan Zero. Always a perma-deleter.

November 5th, 2010, 01:45 AM
Trash is useful. If you realize right after you delete, "I wanted that!" you can get it back. I keep it for a while. But I empty it. The whole idea for deleting files is to keep my computer clean and disk space free. It doesn't happen if you don't empty the trash.

November 5th, 2010, 02:58 AM
Zer0, I bypass with "delete" as well.

November 5th, 2010, 03:08 AM
When I say no tag backs, that includes deletion of files. When it's gone, there is no coming back. I lose more putty.tats dat way.

November 5th, 2010, 03:14 AM
Big number 0, Shift-Delete ftw..

November 5th, 2010, 03:16 AM
Trash is useless for me. Things get deleted from the FS table right away.

I normally keep it empty, but I had to vote differently because I somehow have 3 whole things in there. Not for long, though...

Zero , I don't have a trash icon on my desktop by choice.

November 5th, 2010, 03:58 AM
Shift+Del = no items in the trash

November 5th, 2010, 05:37 AM
none.. I usually empty immediately after

November 5th, 2010, 05:47 AM
The trash replaces time machine for me. I delete large items permanently, but I keep smaller stuff for a few weeks and if I need it, there it is. :KS

November 5th, 2010, 05:52 AM
Why is there a trash ? I find no use of it

November 5th, 2010, 05:58 AM
There are a lot of recovering softwares available . So one can recover even after a permanent delete . So there is no need of a trash . I think trash is a windows idea the linux people copied .

November 5th, 2010, 06:03 AM
I normally leave it for a week or 2 just in case I need it. Than I will empty the trash after that.

November 5th, 2010, 06:35 AM
Trash can? What's that :lol:

0, Zero, nada, zilch, none, nothing...

November 5th, 2010, 06:35 AM
shift+delete for me too, usually if i want to get rid of something i dont want it back

November 5th, 2010, 07:50 AM
Usually zero. I don't think I've ever moved something back from the trash can in Ubuntu.

November 5th, 2010, 10:58 AM
Gotta keep the trash clean. If it's sitting in the trash, it's wasted space!

November 5th, 2010, 12:32 PM
42, most of which are png files I was using to write a quick how-to in order to help the end-users to understand the new GUI of a service that will undergo a massive update next week.

November 5th, 2010, 01:11 PM
None, now that I've setup an Autotrash cron job. I have it set up to try to keep 20% of my drive free and delete files older than 30 days. Right now I'm using 82% of my drive, so it's keeping my trash bin empty.
