Description

When deleting the trash in the persistent volume, documents go to a hidden trash folder. See #6254.

Until then a workaround could be added to the FAQ.

History

#1 Updated by sajolida almost 6 years ago

  • Related to Feature #6254: Make it easy to empty Trash on persistent volume added

#2 Updated by BitingBird over 5 years ago

The workaround is : "open the volume in nautilus, show hidden files and delete the trash folder"

#3 Updated by intrigeri over 5 years ago

What is the workaround?

IIRC, it is:

  1. Navigate to the /live/persistent/*_unlocked/ folder.
  2. Tell Nautilus to show hidden files.
  3. Go to the .Trash (or similar) folder.
  4. Delete stuff without going to the trash.

Ah, and I had the same Git problems as with #7118. So please do reset your branch in the same way.

  • I tried to follow your instructions and couldn't find any hidden trash folder neither in /live/persistent/*_unlocked/ (litteraly), neither in /live/persistence/TailsData_unlocked. Please test your documentation before asking for review.
  • Can you actually explain how to "tell Nautilus to show hidden files"?
  • Can you actually be more precise than ".Trash (or similar) folder". Try to find out if this folder is called the same in every Tails.
  • Avoid coloquial language such as "stuff".
  • Use ikiwiki shortcuts to point to tickets, see http://git.tails.boum.org/tails/commit/?h=doc/6872-FAQ_bridge_relay_in_Tails&id=5926e1cf7d44513dd23bcd95dbc8ef3e35b56657.

Done this directly into master after merging #7118. It seemed straightforward.
