Even if the Windows recycle bin is disabled, files deleted via FileZilla still end up there.

FileZilla has no explicit support for a recycle bin. It simply calls the SHFileOperation API function of Windows. Either you haven't disabled the recycle bin or something is wrong with your Windows.

Helpful as always. I forgot, your software is perfect.
Nevermind that I can replicate this on multiple systems running 64-bit versions of XP Professional and 2003 Server.

Looks like you have found a bug in Windows. Most likely the 64bit and 32bit Explorer use a different set of settings. Try disabling the recycle bin from the 32bit Explorer, not the 64bit one.

32-bit Explorer's recycle bin settings match the 64-bit version and show disabled. Also, deleting a file from 32-bit Explorer does not send it to the trash folder. However, I've now tested from a couple other 32-bit applications, such as WinSCP and it does indeed send the files to the recycle bin. Most of my apps are either 64-bit, or somehow use the 64-bit file dialogs so I hadn't noticed it before. A 64-bit version of FileZilla would be most welcome!

This problem has been fixed by Microsoft in Windows 7.
