RecycleBinEx (file deletion utility)

#1 Post by Midas » Thu Mar 01, 2018 10:57 am

Apparently, after extolling the virtues of Linux only Autotrash (viewtopic.php?t=3509 & viewtopic.php?t=21875), I managed to totally miss RecycleBinEx, which is precisely what the doctor ordered... :mrgreen:

So here it is for general appreciation -- I'm posting to "Discussion" on account of its peculiar features.
author of http://www.fcleaner.com/recyclebinex wrote:RecycleBinEx is a powerful and easy to use recycle bin manager for Windows Operating System. It extends and enhances the Windows recycle bin, and let you use many extra features in it. With RecycleBinEx, you can sort the items in recycle bin; group them according to the deleted time, the logical disk, etc. You can select and remove the deleted items which were deleted one day ago, two days ago, 7 days ago, ..., 3 months ago by just one click. Or remove the deleted items of such as C disk only by one click, too.

RecycleBinEx is made by the same author of FCleaner Portable (viewtopic.php?t=4331); it can be easily (Uni)extracted and if you disable all "Options" in the respective dialog, it appears to be portable -- but not stealth, as it still creates 'HKCU\Software\FTweak'.

In that case, how does it work portably, you may ask? As RecycleBinEx accepts command line parameters, it's as easy as typing the following in a plain text file and change the extension to batch ('.BAT').

Code: Select all

@RecycleBinEx -cleanupdays 7 -close
RecycleBinEx initial (and latest) release (currently v1.0.5.530) can be downloaded from http://www.fcleaner.com/recyclebinex.

This baby is going to be a great man, it's still using diapers though. I got 4GB in the Recycle bin and it doesn't show correct file names nor deletion date at all, and the refreshing on scrolling is ssssssslowwww. and no option to restore deleted files to its original location... or.... I probably missed it all in this rush test!

Sorry to hear that, xor. :(

OTOH, 4GB of trash does take some time to sift through, especially if you're on magnetic storage (HDD).

Considering the program was released 7 years ago, I seriously doubt RecycleBinEx's developer foresaw the need to work with such large loads...

RecycleBinEx is working perfectly to my austere needs. For anyone wanting it to run fully stealth, here's a yaP launcher configuration:

Code: Select all

; configuration file for yaP v0.7.1.5 (http://rolandtoth.hu/yaP/)
; application name: RecycleBinEx
; version: v1.0.5.530
; website: http://www.fcleaner.com/recyclebinex

[GENERAL]
application = RecycleBinEx.exe

; commandline = 
; workdir = 

[BEFORE]
regkey = HKCU\Software\FTweak\RecycleBinEx

[...]
In case you just want it to clean and exit with the parameters in my OP, just add the following line right after the "application" line above:

Code: Select all

commandline = -cleanupdays 7 -close
