Deleting files in Windows CE

By Blackcurrant ·
Hi everyone.

My company has recently bought an Allegro hand-held device that we use to log data from a GPS system. The Allegro runs Windows CE V. 4.10 (Build 90.

My question regards deleting files from the device. One of our surveyors used a program to delete a file which should not have been deleted. When we checked the device's Recycle Bin, it was empty.

I thought maybe it was a quirk of the program. So I used My Computer to delete a file and then checked the Recycle Bin again - but it was still empty.

The recycle Bin is set to reserve 10% of available storage for it's own use = 2.28MB. The test file I deleted was only 104 bytes.

So, I would like to know if the Recycle Bin needs to be activated? Or is there something wrong with the device?

This is the first time I have used Windows CE, so any advice will be appreciated.

Thanks

Don't know about this particular piece of hardware but i know on a windows PC that if you right click the deleted item folder on the desktop there is a radio button which says " do not move files to the recycle bin Remove files immediatley when deleted".

If this option is checked it simply deleted the file without putting it in the recycle bin.

Hi Jim, thanks for answering. I checked the Recycle Bin properties when I was testing it and although this option does exist, it is not checked. Good answer though.
