Duck Duck Go


The standard desktop file managers and the command line command trash will move deleted files to the trash can rather than actually delete the files. The trash can is a directory often found as ~/.local/share/Trash. This allows the recovery of accidentally deleted files, at least until the trash can is emptied, perhaps using the command trash-empty.
