Recycle Bin Emptying Schedule - Added Flexibility

Postby pafer » Tue Aug 01, 2017 6:10 am

Hi all,

I think the Recycle Bin Empty Schedule could do with being slightly more flexible.

Instead of just emptying* the recycling bins on a given schedule, I think it would be more useful if files were removed on a rolling schedule.
I would have thought this could be added in as an option alongside the other Recycle Bin Emptying Settings (and use a similar function to those other rules when determining how long a file has been in the recycle bin).

Example
A user may want to set the recycling schedule to operate every Sunday at 21:00 but only delete files older than 30 days.
This way, a file I deleted at 20:59 on a Sunday would not be (almost) immediately deleted forever.



*Notwithstanding the preservation rules on file sizes and extensions.

Hi pafer, after nearly 2 1/2 years you are the third asking for this. There was no need to open a new thread. This is an old feature request.
I guess the reason we don't have this option yet is because not enough users ask...

Hi Gunthor,

Thanks! I guess I didn't search wide enough!

I thought more people would find this useful, but maybe not.
