If Plastic would give users an option to move deleted files to the recycle bin rather than permanently deleting them, it would really save our bacon sometimes. I managed to find two uservoice requests on this: https://plasticscm.uservoice.com/forums/15467-general/suggestions/8214330-use-dustbin-for-delete-operations https://plasticscm.uservoice.com/forums/15467-general/suggestions/11356815-use-the-recycle-bin-whenever-you-can The first one was closed because it hadn't gotten enough votes in a year. The second one was closed within a week because it had been asked before. Which is frustrating, because this seems to shut it down from ever being a feature in the future, no matter how many people might want it. Personally, I ran into this just this week. I'd been fighting with Plastic issues all day (having some sort of network problem only with Plastic, which I talked to support about). In this hectic day, I accidentally deleted a folder that contained all the changes I'd been working on in the last day. If Plastic could have put them in the recycle bin instead, it would have saved me a couple of hours of work reconstructing them. I know that Pablo posted on one of those requests: I get that. Usually on the filesystem I do the same thing. But I don't find the same to be the case for when I delete things in a tool like Plastic, Unity, Visual Studio, etc. If I delete a file in those, it was probably a pretty important file, not just some random download or whatever. It's high value. That's why of those three I mentioned, all but Plastic delete to the recycle bin. It's especially frustrating when using a tool like version control, which is something that's all about not losing your valuable work. I'm posting this here rather than uservoice because it feels like it'll just get instantly closed like the last one, and some people might want to weigh in on it when they do a google search in the years to come (google searches don't seem to index uservoice properly, missing one of those links above) to see why Plastic doesn't do this. I get it if you don't want it to be the default (though that would help save more people). But at least give us the option. I keep seeing so many Plastic updates with changes that in no way add any value for our team. Not saying they don't add value for someone, but it would be nice to see something I'd actually use. And from a programming standpoint, it seems a pretty straightforward and unchallenging task.
A convenience suggestion. Could we get the checkout option for context menu for items listed in checkin changes? I find that Changed Items tends to reflect the items I want to checkout, so navigating the explore workspace tab becomes cumbersome in comparison.
