An application that will replace the standard delete action

How many times have you realized that you deleted the wrong files from the computer? iBin is a small app that can keep some of the deleted files on a removable disk.

The program has a simple interface that is easy to work with, thanks to the intuitive layout.

Basically, iBin replaces the delete action on your system and redirects any of the items you want to the removable disk it is installed on. It also keeps a log of the erased files and can restore them to the directory of origin.

The app comes with hotkey support, which means you can use various key combinations to perform certain actions. Thus, these shortcuts can help you dump the selected files to the iBin (Win key + Delete) or erase them completely (Win key + E). Additionally, in order to undo any action you must press the Windows key and Backspace.

The iBin container can be emptied just like the regular Recycle Bin, but when you perform this action, all data is permanently erased from the device.

There are several customization options available for all users. For instance, the program can be set to always ask permission before dumping a file to the removable disk or erasing it from the computer. Furthermore, if there are any conflicts regarding the restoring data, the program can simply duplicate the files, overwrite the content or just skip the process.

A space limit may also be defined as a percentage of the device’s capacity. Some auto-cleaning settings are available as well.

The bottom line is that iBin is a nice tool that can come in handy quite often. Inexperienced users should find it easy to work with, thanks to the overall simplicity of the app.
