Help please trash Bin?where can i find it

When you deleted files is it totaly disappeared? Or  the deleted files goes to any trash bin? Does  SonyXperia  phone has a trash bin?

Re: Help please trash Bin?where can i find it

There is no general system-wide trashbin.

Usually when you delete a file it's gone.

However, it depends on the app you are using to delete something. There are several file managers in the store that have a trashbin function (I'm using File Commander, for example). There are also photo gallery apps with such a feature.


So a trashbin-functionality is possible but is has to be implemented in the app you are using to delete a specific file.

Hi @Janine39, welcome to our forum!

@skycamefalling pretty much covered it all! As per standard there is no trash bin/recycle bin in Android devices, but some applications may have one available.

As far as I know, you need to delete the file using this application to be able to recover it, so for example, if you delete a photo in the Album application, it will not show up in the trash bin in for example, File Commander. @skycamefalling can probably confirm or deny this though!

Have a nice day!
