Sometimes when we do a shift-delete we realise only after a certain while that we have deleted the wrong file! (has happened with me). I just have an idea to avert this disaster! If the OS could delete the file in question only after a certain period of time, the chances of recovery are high in that certain period, even in case of any number of disc writes after deletion.If that period of time is user configurable, that would be great!Can OS experts around here throw light on the feasibility of its implementation?
