OS X :: Deleted Files In Downloads Folder Not Go To Trash


On my MacBook, when I delete a file in the Downloads folder, it says that it will go immediately and for some reason it doesn't go to Trash. On my iMac, the behaviour is as I expect, it goes to Trash and I can undo it. Is there a way to change it on the MacBook so it goes to Trash? I'm using 10.6.3.

MacBook Pro :: Deleted/Move To Trash Files Don't Go To The Trash - They Get Deleted?
When I right click on a file or folder and select Move to Trash a box opens up with a Warning! "Are you sure you want to delete "File name" this file will be deleted immediately. You can't undo this action"

The system seems to totally delete the file and it does not show up in the Trash so I can delete it later any ideas?

Software :: Data Recovery From Deleted Folders / Files Are Deleted Via Trash?
I have a MacPro (Intel), and I had my Music folder on a second (non-boot) internal drive. That drive was getting full, so I bought yet another internal drive to put in one of the other bays, thinking to copy the folders to the new, larger-capacity drive. So I bought a 2 Tb drive and transferred all my MOVIES to the new drive, but then went back and deleted my MUSIC folder and emptied the trash. I knew immediately that I'd made a mistake.

I haven't written anything to that drive whatsoever from that moment on, so absolutely nothing should have been over-written. I have plenty of room on the new drive to which I can recover the deleted files. Unfortunately the folder/directory was very large, with over 20,000 files, mostly of podcasts/spoken word stuff, much of which is no longer available or would represent thousands of hours of download time, plus all my digitized folk music from long out-of-print LP records.

You'd think I'd be more responsible with >600 Gb of data! However, fortunately the drive is in good working order, it just requires a good recovery strategy. I know that services that do recovery charge a fortune, and because I haven't written anything to that drive and it still mounts without problems, I'm hoping I can do this myself with a good data recovery software package. Because I am talking about literally thousands of files, it is just too painful to think about editing all the metadata about each file (name, artist, album, etc.), and ideally I would like to recover the files and the file structure so podcasts are recovered as such, etc.

Is this at all possible?

If so, what are the relative merits of File Salvage vs. Data Rescue vs. Kernel for Macintosh (Nucleus Data Recovery) vs. VirtualLab Data Recovery vs. Stellar Phoenix? Is there something better than these--these are the only ones I found on a Web search. Are there any head-to-head reviews of which someone is aware?

OS X Tiger :: E-mail Deleted From My Account Does Not Go To My Trash Folder?
I delete an e-mail it doesn't go to my Mail Trash folder even though I have it set up like that in preferences. I have searched the forum and found this answer - which I have tried, but doesn't solve the problem. I have been able to locate my deleted e-mail in /library/mail/account name/deleted messages/ folder.I have also tried to rebuild the trash folder associated with this e-mail account, but the selection is blanked out and I can't. I was using Entourage (windows office for MAC) before and when it started getting real slow I changed to the Mail product.

OS X Leopard :: Can't Get Back Deleted Files From Trash
Today afternoon I'm running Boot Camp via Window XP downloaded a Daemon Tools software, however it attached a virus called Mr.Lin Mutation Virus, which is covered by a fake NOD32 Folder, it run automatically when I install the Daemon Tools, in begin it running like the virus scanner, but after restart, all the files and data ( more than 200GB ) in my portable hard drive were completely gone, then just left all the named empty folders in my HD, even the original security application from my portable hard-drive was also being erase. However, the part of my Boot Camp was not effect. So now that we know the virus running in begin actually was deleting the data from my mac. As I remember a years ago I have been tried a software for getting back the deleted file from the trash, but now I couldn't find it again. So does anyone know how to get it back ? Please lend a hand, there are something important inside. Also, does anyone know the way of data delete in the Mac is it as same as the way of Boot Camp ?

Snow Leopard :: Deleted Files Not Going To Trash Bin
I'm having an strange problem in the Mac. When I remove a file from the startup disk, Finder asks me if I want to delete the file (which I already set to not to ask that!), so I accept and the file doesn't go to the trash bin. I do exactly the same thing in another disk and Finder doesn't ask me about deleting the file, it directly trashes it, as it should.

OS X :: Cannot Move Files To Trash - Item Deleted Permanently
My problem is that I can't drag a file to the trash. When I try to delete a file by right-clicking and choose "move to trash" I get a message telling me that the item will be deleted permanently and that I cannot undo this action. In other words it is possible to delete a file permanently, but I would like to have the option to move them to the trash first. I have recently tried to partition the internal hard-drive using Boot Camp, however unsuccessfully. I don't know if the two are related. I have Macbook 13,3" early 2010 with the latest version of Snow Leopard, 10.6.4.

Applications :: Video Files Deleted - Not Showing Up In Trash?
My setup is a 27" C2D iMac, 4GB RAM, running SL, all latest updates. iTunes is latest version with the library hosted on an external Drobo connected via FW800. I have no iPods plugged in just now and have disabled automatic sync with my ATV so I know there shouldn't be any tasks running within iTunes itself.

This morning I get a message about a corrupt iTunes library. I restored the file from a backup and after a long time referencing the corresponding .xml file, iTunes loaded up. 95% of the library was fine, but for some reason, it had lost some files, leaving me with exclamation marks scattered around the place. If I manually locate the file, that solves the problem, so while its a pain, I can sort it out, or I guess the new equivalent of consolidate library should clear it up.

Anyway, for the last few hours, iTunes is very slow. Rest of the machine is fine and its not hogging resources according to activity monitor, but its clearly doing something which is making it appear to be un-responding. When I switch to it, it takes a while to appear, then the spinning beach ball, then maybe 30 seconds to a minute later, it becomes active for a short time before becoming unresponsive again.
