  • How can I confirm file delete? All boxes checked, but not working

    I want the program to ask me to confirm before deleting a file. In Options>File Management, I have all the boxes checked, including "confirm file delete" and "use recycle bin", but still pressign the delete key leads to instant deletion. This seems like a glitch. Happy to be shown the error of my ways.

    Hello RRobinson,

    By default, the "Display delete confirmation dialog" in Windows is disabled. This has been like this since Windows 8. As you have the option set to use the Recycle Bin in ACDSee, the application follows the Recycle Bin options in Windows and not show a dialog. To avoid this you have the following two options:

    1) You can select not to use the recycle bin and you will see a confirmation dialog in ACDSee. But since you are not using the recycle bin, deleting in this case will permanently delete the files.

    2) You can enable the "Display delete confirmation dialog" in Windows Recycle Bin by right clicking on Recycle Bin and going to Properties.

    Hope this helps your situation.

    Sincerely,

    Shakil H.
