What to Do When I Can't See Deleted Files in the Trash?

Hello, when I delete a file I am not asked any longer with the warning message if I am sure I want to delete and most of all the file does not appear in the trash folder. Any fixes?

Hello, according to your description, here are the fixes:

(1)Recover the missing files with professional tools. You are suggested to recover the deleted files but not in Mac Trash with iBoysoft Data Recovery for Mac even if they are permanently deleted from Mac Trash.

  1. Free download, install, and open it.
  2. Choose the drive where you stored and delete the files then click Search for Lost Data.
  3. After scanning, preview and find your wanted files then click Recover to save them to another place.
