There are some instances when you use your friend’s computer and access your data from your USB drive. Some time you delete some file from your USB drive to cleanup and leave your friends PC. But suppose one day you have deleted some files from your USB drive when using your friend’s computer and back in your home. Later you discovered that you’ve deleted some confidential data from it.
There is a chance of recovering those data from your friend’s computer. But two things may happen with the deleted data. The data may be deleted permanently or go to the Recycle Bin of your friend’s computer. In second case it is possible to recover those data from your friends computer until he didn’t delete those. But if he does so then your important data goes in vain.
So if there was an inbuilt Recycle bin, just like your Windows has, in your USB drive then you never would face that situation. There is a tiny utility iBin working in both Windows XP and Windows 7, which creates a Recycle bin in your USB drive.
Download the zipped file and extract in your USB flash drive. Mind that this application does only work on removable disk. Now run the .exe file iBin. It will automatically create a folder iBin in your Flash drive. It does occupy a small space in the Flash drive.
Now when you want to drop any file from your USB drive, a confirmation message will pop up.
If you want to delete permanently from USB drive then click on “Erase it”. Clicking on “Dump into iBin” will send the file in the folder named iBin in your flash drive and you will be able to restore the file later on.
You can also adjust some other options for the recycle bin. Right click on the iBin icon in the system tray and select “Custom option”.
There are many options available as your need. You can set the volume of the recycle bin by dragging the slide. You can also set the delete action, hot key and many more from the custom option window.
Hope the utility will help you to prevent from data losing. Let me know what about your opinion.
