Use recycling bin doesn't work


The "use recycling bin" feature seems not to work. When clicked, deleted files are not appearing in the recycling bin. This occurs with .wtv files, have not tried it with other file types. Will post a log/profiles later today.

Same problem has happened to me. I have Delete files and use recycle bin checked but it still deletes the files and never sends them to the recycle bin.

What files are being deleted and not being sent to the recycle bin? This only works on the original files and nothing else. What build and OS are you using?

The .wtv files from WMC.

I have tried enabling this feature off and on since I started using MCEBuddy the last year or so.

I've also noticed lately that the .wtv files are not automatically moving to the archive folder I have setup or sometimes they are copied but not deleted from my recording folder. I am still monitoring this issue and I can reply back later when I have done more testing.

FYI - I had "Delete original file" checked in General Settings, but I noticed that you can also delete or archive original file under the Monitor Locations > expert settings. This also did not place the file in the recycle bin, it just deleted it. I double-checked and I have "Use recycle bin" checked in General Settings > System Settings.
