    Recycle bin/Trash folder 11th Sep 17 at 8:59 PM
    How often do you empty the bin on your computer/laptop/tablet/etc?

    Also, how often do you do the same with your email trash folder?

    I tend to do my PC bin as soon as something goes in it and my various email accounts about once a week.

    My email is full of rubbish, i probably only start to clear it once a year, if that.
    Each night before i turn the computer off, i run Ccleaner, so i suppose that cleans up ............ Then of course i'll clear the history straight away if i've been watching any of the porn sites, in case the missus checks up on me.

    I don't as I very rarely put anything in the recycle bin on my computer.
    When I delete stuff I normally use Shift+Delete so that it just goes rather than gets put into the recycle bin.

    For emails I don't empty it at all, I use various different webmail accounts and have loads of storage. I think my emails delete older deleted stuff, I've not looked to be honest.

    What's a recycle bin? I only have Trash on my iPad.


    I'm always emptying it, as I don't want it clogging up my memory or Cloud storage.

    I empty the recycle bin on my laptop whenever I clear history and cache and/or reboot.

    The email spam and trash I empty weekly.
