Question: Trash deleting items immediately
As of upgrading to OS High Sierra, my trash folder deletes files immediately. Dragging files to the trash folder prompts the message "Are you sure you want to delete "File_name"? This file will be deleted immediately". Deleting files with cmd-delete brings the same result. My Trash is thus unusable as nothing gets stored in it.
How can I stop my computer from bypassing Trash and deleting things immediately?
