This should be implemented as an option on WHM > Tweak Settings. The admin should be able to enable or disable the trash for all accounts.


I think this feature is valuable because clients tend to trash things and never empty the trash and then complain about full accounts... etc.

Should be an option to skip trash by default and also to flush trash files older than 30 days

This is a must. The Trash folder will eventually fill-up the server with "trash" and it will happen fast for servers with 1000s of Cpanel accounts.

I think this is a good idea, This feature is required.

It is a required feature, Many users don't know about trash and empty trash.. They think their host account has problem.

This feature actually increases support requests. We prefer to have users request a restore from backup then not know what is using up all their disk space.

or why not a option for a time limit on trash. trash is kept for x days. then a cron cleans it up. Also we are talking about options right not absolutes. we are not asking for features to be hard coded, yes?

this is an important feature, please implement.

Yes, that would be great - maybe 30 days? Or make it configurable in WHM? Most end users are not going to have any idea that they are wasting space.

One of our teams has picked up this request, and is working on it now. We hope to see it land in v60.

Agreed, we are seeing support request every week due to trash implentation, I would rather just not have it at all, we provide daily downloadable back-ups for our clients..
