    I have ver. 10 & that will backup whatever you leave in there. However I get rid of everything in it before I make a new backup. (WHY backup junk )?:D

    Thank you for your answer, but I think right question is: Why restore Junko_O;) ...Do you know that some users (Big Boss) use Recycled Bin like secure folder...he tolds me: no one look inside it....
    Best Regards,

    If it was definitely junk, it wouldn't be in a Recycle Bin. The whole point of Recycle Bin is to be able to retrieve deleted files that you still need, that are not junk. Of course if you keep a long enough history of backups, you can obviate the benefits of the Recycle Bin. And, of course, you can exclude the folder from backups if you want.

    Also, you can download ccleaner.exe for free, set it to run with /Auto parameteer in a Windows Task Scheduler task and run it as often as you want to keep that pesky Recycle Bin nearly always empty. ;-)

    Hello Jposs,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis Products

    Performing full drive backup means that you include OS, all applications and data to the image, so recycle bin also goes. But there is an option within the program which allows you to exclude unnecessary files or folders from the image. See user guide for the appropriate product to read more about file/folder exclusion.

    Best regards,
