3 Apps to Add a Recycling Bin to Your Android Device

3 Apps to Add a Recycling Bin to Your Android Device

0.0/7 rating (0 votes)

Have you ever deleted something accidentally? Who hasn't, right? If what was erased was something crucial, you might turn to those file recovering software's, but you if you not very tech savvy, you just don't see the light at the end of the tunnel. If you don't want this to happen to you, you can prevent it from installing a recycling bin app such as the ones in the following list. That way, if you ever do erase something by accident, all you have to do is to go to the recycling bin and recover your file.

1. Dumpster

Dumpster is a great option if you want to add a recycling bin to either your Android phone or tablet. The app can recover eliminated content such as pictures, videos, audio, zip, PDF, MP3, RAR and much more. Dumpster doesn't require an Internet connection to work, so your files will always be backed up. To set up what files you want the app to back up just tap on the hamburger icon on the upper left-hand corner and select Settings. Once you're there tap on Protect Settings, and you will see the following:

Add a Recycling Bin to Your Android 5

​Now, it's up to you what you want to save and what not to. Dumpster is available in a large variety of languages such as English, Spanish, French, German, and much more. It also features an Auto-Clean feature where the app will automatically erase anything older than one week, one month or 3 months. The app is free and waiting for you to download it.

2. Recycle Bin

Recycle Bin is another option. It's not as popular as Dumpster, but if Dumpster doesn't convince you this is another option to explore. Recycle Bin works with the majority of the file explorer's, and if you want to send a file to the recycling bin, you need to choose the file in your file explorer and choose Recycle bin in the Open With or Send To menus. Sending a file to the recycling bin isn't as easy as with the previous app, but if you're usually using your file explorer, it's a good deal for you.

An interesting feature this app has is that it lets you decide how big the file has to be to go to the recycling bin.​

Recycle Bin also features in-app purchases, and if your file explorer allows it, you can see a folder or various files to the recycling bin with one simple action.​

3. ES File Explorer

If you don't have this app installed on your Android device, I'm sure you have at least heard of it. But, did you know it also has a recycling bin? Even though this app has an endless amount of features to offer us, I'll concentrate on recycling bin feature. Unlike Dumpster where you can erase the file from your gallery, with ES File Explorer, you need to delete the file from within the app.

Sending a file to the recycling bin is easy. For example, let's say you want to send a picture to the bin. When you open the app select images in category:​

Add a Recycling Bin to Your Android 3

Let's say you're looking through your current wallpapers:

Add a Recycling Bin to Your Android 4

Once inside wallpapers, choose the wallpaper you want to eliminate and on the upper right-hand corner you will see three white dots. Tap on them and select delete:

Add a Recycling Bin to Your Android 1

After that you will be asked if you are sure that you want to send that image to the recycling bin, tap Ok and you're done!

Conclusion

If you usually manage your files through your device's gallery and once there delete them or not, then Dumpster is a better choice for you. If not, then the other two choices will do. It's always a good idea to have a recycling bin on your Android device since anyone is capable of accidentally deleting a file.

I can never get enough of tech in general, whether it's Android or web apps, but helping others solve their tech problems also brings great satisfaction. I carry a device wherever I go and I'm always connected. Life without Internet just sounds too scary to me. :-).
