    Recycle bin question


    If I delete a folder that contain files, the files inside the folder will be deleted to recycle bin correct? If I go into recycle bin and right click on that folder and select [delete], all the files inside the folder will be delete permanently correct?

    If my recycle bin has many files and folders, and I only want to delete 1 file or 1 folder, I open recycle bin and right click and select [delete], the file/folder selected will be permanently deleted correct? If it is a folder the files inside also will be permanently deleted correct?

    Thanks
