I have a WD NAS, and sometimes I right click a file and choose "Move to Trash", a box pops up saying the file will be deleted immediately (and cannot be undone). So I thought I released the space.
But later on, I found that the NAS actually has a folder called "Recycle Bin," and the deleted files are still there. So, it looks like the space is actually not released, and I have to find the Recycle Bin on different volumes and then delete the files.
That is kind of manual and low level and is hard to manage. Is there a way to do it in the Dashboard or configure it so that it really is "delete immediately"?
P.S. I just found, what's more, if I move some files between Shares in the same NAS -- note that it is "moving", then the NAS actually decrease in storage, and I found the file in the Recycle Bin... so it is like a copy and delete. This makes it even harder to manage.
P.S. I found out Recycle Bin seems to be on a "per share" level, meaning each share can be configured to have a recycle bin or not. If there is no recycle bin, then the file is immediately deleted and space released.
