Default Trashbox Folder

Win XP Pro
I have a folder named trashbox on my NAS.

Is this the recyclebin for the NAS ?
Are these folders and files that were "deleted" from other folders on
the NAS ?

Do I delete all the file in the trashbox folder if I need the space ?

Google tells me you have a Buffalo NAS.

Who knew ?

"For Buffalo NAS devices this folder is called "trashbox" and is
located in the root of each share;

for Buffalo NAS it is 100% by default enabling the Recycle Bin
on every share created."

That article, refers to Backup software and its space management
functions. The space management function, used to roll over
the storage space and turf the oldest backup, may not work
correctly if the delete logic throws an item in the Recycle Bin,
when it should really just be doing "del somebackup.someextention"
and doing a direct delete.

So yes, if a del command on the NAS cleans the trashbox,
that gets the space back. Does the NAS have its own
feature for this, a means to clean trashbox ? As working
graphically with the stupid thing, it may not behave properly.
If you press Shift and then select delete, maybe then
it will work properly ?

Normally, external storage is set by Windows to "immediately delete"
and there really should not be Recycle bin support there. I'm really
surprised the Recycle Bin is wired up on the Buffalo, because so
many external storage methods don't have working Recycle.

But at least the above article warns that "Buffalo likes to do this".

Does the Buffalo user manual address this ?

You could visit the NAS using Linux, and try to delete
from there. I expect the wiring won't be quite the same,
so if your attempts to correct the situation still aren't
working ( *even after reading the manual!* ), you could
try to fix it from Linux with no guarantees.

I have several different NAS device brands on my work network.(Synology, Buffalo, Drobo,Netgear)

They all have some form of Recycle Bin or Trashbox.

Even if you shift-del on files/folders they go into the Recycle Bin.

If you delete them from the Recycle Bin, they are gone.
