If you’ve found yourself wishing that your flash drive had a recycle bin so that your portable apps and documents had the same safety net that you’re desktop files do, iBin brings recycle bin functionality to your flash drive.
iBin is a small, stand-alone portable application. Place it on your flash drive and run it and create the iBin folder that will be your portable recycle bin. If you have a large flash drive with a lot of files, I suggest running it for the first time when you’re not going anywhere. iBin indexes the entire drive to build a list of files it should protect and send to the recycle bin.
Once iBin has finished the initial drive index, it’s packed with some other cool features. It comes with a well written manual, but if you skip reading it at least note that in order to delete a file from the flash drive while iBin is running you’ll need to hit WIN+DEL, not just the delete key. iBin intercepts the standard delete if it is performed on a file it has indexed. All files you delete with iBin end up in X:\iBin\ where X is the letter of your flash drive. In the Custom Options menu of iBin you can specify what happens on deletion, how files are restored, how big the recycle bin should be, and if iBin should auto-clean the recycle bin.
