Files deleted from disk not in recycle bin

I am using BigSur 11.2.3 on a 2019 Macbook Pro &  LR cc ver. 10.1.1.

When I delete a photo from the disk in LR, it does not go into the recycle bin.  If I close LR, reboot my computer it shows up in the trash.  If I delete a file or photo from a library on the Mac, it works as it should.  I can delete a file from my computer, go to the recycle bin, empty it, shut down the computer, reboot and whatever I deleted from LR then shows up.

If I accidently delete a file and want it back I won't be able to find it without going through the rebooting process which is a pain.  

I couldn't find anyone else having the problem but would love to see a solution.

This happens to me once in awhile on the Mac too but not just in LrC.  Just Option-RightClick the Finder icon and chose Relaunch.  It will refresh the Trash.

Hi, Susan. I run into this problem sometimes too; it seems more likely to occur when I import photos, mark some as rejected, then use "Delete rejected photos" from Lightroom's Photo menu to delete them. To get them to show up in the trash, I create an empty folder on the drive where the photos are stored, then delete that empty folder. The empty folder goes to the trash and the photos I deleted from Lightroom show up there too. Not sure why "Relaunch Finder" is no longer appearing, but you might...

Does Lightroom have Full Disk Access? Check this in your System Preferences>Security & Privacy>Full Disk Access. If it isn't in the list, tap the lock>add computer password>Add Lightroom to the list in the right column.

It did not have full disk access so I added it to the list.  It has been working fine for the last couple of days though so maybe it healed itself.

Appreciate your taking the time to respond.

Full disk access didn't work but relaunching via finder did help as I didn't have to reboot.

Love knowing that option.  Nice to know.  I will give it a try the next time the problem occurs.

Worked a treat.  Thanks for helping to prevent the reboot process.

The problem has popped up again and I am having to reboot.  For some reason, option + right click on finder no longer brings up the relaunch option.  Any other solutions other than rebooting?

 

Thanks, Susan

Hi, Susan.

Not sure why "Relaunch Finder" is no longer appearing, but you might try clicking the Apple logo on the menu bar, selecting "Force Quit" and choosing "Finder".

Thanks for the help daleducatte.  I will try your suggestions the next time the problems occurs.  I just rebooted so it will be a while before it will happen again.
