Follow Niel's instructions in this post: When I move items to the trash they do not go into the trash, they are deleted entirely Read everything carefully. There are a variety of reasons this may have occurred. This may help also: When I move files to trash,the bin is empty. My files never go there. Its always empty??? or this one: Macbook Air - dragging item to trash deletes immediately. How to change.
