Re: "Move to Google Drive trash?" dialog really needs to stop

Couldn't agree more. This is a ridiculous addition to version 1.9. How do we turn this off???

Hi all,

this warning was added because many people were deleting files and folders from the Google Drive folder but didn't notice that the files are not erased from Google Drive and are only moved to the web Trash, where they still count against the storage quota. So this warning it meant to tell people that the files are going to the web trash.

Actually you should be seeing this for individual files too, although I agree that there should be a checkbox to dismiss the warning.

Regards,

Filipe

I agree. I use Drive to keep a running copy of security camera clips. The security app deletes the oldest folder every day but this dialogue pops up and the process of syncing stops. Therefore if I am away for a few days (remotely checking any files) the whole syncing process comes to a complete halt. Please allow us to turn this feature off and simply permanently delete everything. Simply removing the popup won't help as my profile will fill to capacity with deleted items!

Yes! Google please stop this madness! At the very least give us a tick box to "remember decision" or something. I cannot have this pop-up every time I delete a folder. Thank you!

This has already happened to me at least 30 times today, and is driving me to contemplate moving everything to Dropbox. Please, Google, come to your senses. If you are not smart enough to realize that when you move something to the trash it will be deleted, no dialog box in the world can help you.

And that's perfectly fine because I'm happy with Cubby. I'm just pointing out that this feature is the only thing keeping me with Cubby over Drive.
