Recycle bin improvements

#1 Post by Dreamer » 16.04.2017, 14:19

I'm trying to use FC for the recycle bin instead of Explorer, there are some issues (reported) and missing features, different behavior as in Explorer.

My suggestions:

#1 Add Recycle bin path <bin> as a Condition for Column profiles.

I tried to do it, but it doesn't work, also the item "Date Deleted" is not in the list, but this might be replaced with "Last access".

Alternatively save the columns order and width for Recycle bin, currently it's not saved, if the path is changed or FC restart.

#2 Add "Folders like files in Recycle bin only" sorting option.

This would be useful for sorting by "Date Deleted", to quickly find last deleted item - and it would be the same as in Explorer.

#3 Add option "Show recycle bin as drive".

#4 Add a keyboard shortcut for Recycle bin.

This is already possible, since the shortcuts for Shift+0, 1, 2 are already used, I suggest Shift+4 (or Shift+5), shortcuts Shift+3 (and Shift+4) should be reserved for some other paths, perhaps 3 for cloud.
Shift+9 make more sense, but it's hard accessible, it should be easy accessible with left hand.

Workaround improvements, if the previous are not easy to implement

#5 Remember "sort by" option (and order and size of the columns) for the Recycle bin.

#6 "Sort by" (and column order and size of the columns) ini options for the Recycle bin.

recyclebinsortby=name1 (sort by name ascending)
recyclebinsortby=datedeleted2 (sort by date deleted decending)
recyclebincolumns=name,datedeleted,originallocation,size

...or with the width size:
recyclebincolumns=name20,datedeleted10,originallocation30,size10

I still miss this feature.

Automatic views feature has been added, but it doesn't work here either, condition for the Recycle bin is missing.

I don't want to use Explorer, but I still have to use it if I want to check the last deleted item or if I want to restore the item, it's much faster as in FC, because in FC I have to switch to details view and scroll in the window mode and click "Date Deleted" column, to show last deleted item first. In explorer I just open Recycle bin and it's on top already.

All I need in FC is to click the Recycle bin and auto-show the last deleted item (file or folder) first / on top.

Is there at least some workaround?
