According to "[ 1475925 ] Client overwrites existing files with 0 bytes", calfellows uses "win2k".

FileZilla uses SHFileOperation on Windows for file deletion and as such behaves exactly as Explorer.

Dear developers,
On my Debian/Wheezy (up-to-date), I remarked this missing feature with FileZilla from Debian's repository (3.5.3) and with the latest FileZilla from your website (, ie when I delete local files with FileZilla, they does not go to recycle bin but they are definitively deleted. It is not same behavior on WinXP, ie delete local files with will move these files on recycle bin.

There is a possibility to implement this feature? I think it's wxWigdet's bug/missing feature (wxRemoveFile) maybe we can bypass this problem? eg move deleted local files to $HOME/.local/share/Trash/files/ or something like that (

Best regards
