Recycle Bin not empty


Recommended Posts

Hi

 

Please note that by default, ASC only deletes the files older than one month in Recycle Bin. If you want ASC to empty your Recycle Bin, please follow the steps below to set ASC:

ASC > Settings > Junk File Clean > uncheck the item "Delet files in Recycle Bin older than one month" > click OK button.

 

Nice day!

Heads-up...  the actual setting wording is as follows

ASC > Settings > Junk File Clean > uncheck the item "Keep files in Recycle Bin for the last... (drop down menu)" > click OK button.

I also wanted the "Temp" files to be deleted show I also removed the check form the temp files option...

ASC > Settings > Junk File Clean > uncheck the item "Keep Windows Temp Files and Memory Dumps for the last... (drop down menu)" > click OK button.

Having both the above settings did in fact remove some if not all the files.  It still left some of the temp files but did empty the recycle bin.  Thanks for the tip here about these as I have been trying to figure this one out for many months. I have placed a screen shot video of where to find the settings and what to change for future reference for other users.  I have been a user of this program and others since ASC was only version 2.
