How to Enable Recycle Bin for USB Flash Drives New Method

When you delete files from a hard drive, they are automatically placed in the Recycle Bin. What will happen if the files come from a USB flash drive? A USB drive is not a local disc; it is a portable device. Because it has less space than the local drive, it does not have a Recycle Bin by default. As a result, anything removed from it gets erased directly rather than going into the Recycle Bin. This wikiHow teaches you how to enable the Recycle Bin on USB devices so that you may restore unintentionally deleted files.

The Recycle Bin is a temporary holding place for files that have been deleted from the computer. The files are not actually deleted from the hard drive until the Recycle Bin is emptied.

The Recycle Bin is a temporary storage location for files that have been deleted from the computer. When a file is deleted from the computer, it is not permanently erased but is instead moved to the Recycle Bin. The file remains in the Recycle Bin until it is permanently deleted from the computer.

Step 1 Open the Registry Editor. Type Registry Editor in the Windows search bar and click it to open.

Step 2 Type the address. Copy this key below and paste it in the top column. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

Step 3 Create a new value. Right-click on a blank area and select New, choose DWORD (32-bit) Value in the drop-down list.

Step 4 Name the new value. Type ‘RecycleBinDrives’ to rename it.

Step 5 Modify the value. Right-click it and choose Modify.

Step 6 Set the Value data. Set its Value data to ffffffff, and choose Hexadecimal under Base then click OK.

Step 7 Reboot. Restart the PC to apply the changes.

Step 8 Examine the Recycle Bin’s updated settings. All deleted files on the USB will now each go to their respective recycling bin. Check the Recycle Bin Properties to make sure “Don’t transfer files to the Recycle Bin” is not checked.

If necessary, remove and restore files. When a USB is inserted, you can permanently erase those deleted data or recover them in the Recycle Bin.
