The confirmation of deleting file is on by default.
On local panel, the files a not deleted by default, but moved to recycle bin:
So the Moving files to Recycle bin
option applies. Which is on too by default anyway.
Martin, in that case something does not work as you indicate. NONE of edited html files I have worked on and deleted since upgrading to the latest version are in the recycle bin. They appear to be lost forever. This makes me extremely nervous. Next time I highlight a file for deletion by mistake it will be gone for good.
Just to confirm, I logged on remotely to my main development PC where I am running version 5.1.2 (build 2816) and it does ask confirmation of removal on the local directory as well. It is very unfortunate that this confirmation is not offered for local files in the latest version I am running on my laptop 5.7.6 (build 5874), especially after just having made a donation!
Will have no choice but to roll back to 5.1.2 until this major issue is fixed. Very disappointed.
