I accidentally pressed delete while an important file was selected. It without asking and the recycle bin is empty. How do I make that not happen in future? i.e send it to the recycle bin or ask me if i'm sure?
"Don't move files to the recycling bin. Remove files immediately when deleted" is unchecked in recycle bin properties.
I would also be grateful if anyone has any idea how to retrieve the file. To complicate things it was deleted from a USB memory stick just before I was about to back things up.
