Include a decent back-up tool in case files are deleted accidentally

in respose to your answer, what happens if the user deletes their recycle bin regularily like i do. I always ensure that the files recycled cannot be recovered. what happens then? what i meant was to be able to create a zipped file of the deleted files that could be kept for a specific period before being permanently deleted. You could even enable the user to set the time the backup is kept.

Take a look at the options dialog. There is a check mark that is set by default which deletes to Recycle Bin where you can undo deleting if necessary.

What I mean is create a back up of the files deleted by the program that is as a true back up; not the ability to recover from the recycle bin. I always clear my bin out every day and use software to ensure its unrecoverable (as do many users). The backup could be saved as a zip file, which can then be deleted at a later date once the user is sure there are no problem resulting from the use of the HDD washer.

Please see the additional info I've added to the original suggestion (in response to your answer). Thank you.
