Actually, once I went to a niece's house because she was complaining about her computer taking a long time to do anything and programs would randomly crash. I looked at it and instantly noticed her drive was full Then I noticed her Recycle bin had over 5Gb of stuff in it, so I emptied it; job done. The next day I had a phone call: Niece : All my files have gone Me: What do you mean? Niece : All my music and video files have gone. Did you delete them? Me: No, I just emptied your bin. It was very full and was causing the problems you were having. Niece: But I use that to store my files in when I'm not using them. I visited her flat since then... The Recycle bin really is a real world metaphor!
