Removed images from disc don't appear in trash

Since the last update of LrC in can't find in Lightroom Classic deleted files (from disk) in trash. That makes them unrecoverable when I removed them by accident. Why is this changed? Or do I have to change some settings? In the previous version deleted files always appeared in the trash. Any idea?

Thanks, Marc

I am not able to duplicate this. When I delete a photo from Lightroom Classic and select remove from hard disk, the photo appears in the recycle bin. Lightroom Classic 9.3, Windows 10

 

But anyway, you do have backups of your photos, right? Just restore a backup.

Thanks.
I restarted my iMac and voilà: deleted files can be found in trash again.

(Of course a backup of all the files is helpfull, but pick a by mistake deleted file out of the trash works quicker).

Problem (was it a problem) is not a problem anymore.

Some have found simply closing Finder, then opening Finder accomplishes the same result.

This is happening to me now as well, on Lightroom 11.

LR is not saving deletions to the recycle bin. Here's an example from just now:

Recycle Bin before, deletion of photo, Recycle Bin afterward.

I had enhanced that photo, so deleted the original. 

Before that I had deleted another one but inadvertantly had both the enhanced and original selected, and both got deleted.

Neither appeared in my trash so had to restore the original from File History.

This just started, because deletions from Nov. 4 were in File History when I checked it earlier. I had cleaned it out before starting on the subject photos.

 

I tested other programs and Lightroom is the only one this happens with.

Note: Sure, having the backup is handy, but if I had just shot a wedding and file history hadn't run yet, that would be a bigger problem. Normally I leave shoots on my cards for a week but I know photographers that don't do that.

Rebooting yesterday hadn't solved the problem. Rebooted again this morning and tested the recycle bin and same thing. This time from more than just Lightroom.

I clicked on the Recycle Bin's Tool icon, went to Properties and found the "Don't move files to the Recycle Bin. Remove files immediately when deleted" was checked.

No idea how that got that way. That was the first time in my life I had opened the properties for the recycle bin. Anyway I unchecked it and everything is working OK now. Thought I'd post this just to let others who may experience the same problem know where to look.

Cheers.
