RecycleBinEx is an awesome recycle bin app for your Windows 7 taskbar

I admit it -- I'm not much of a Recycle Bin user. Usually if I press the delete key on my Windows system I'm also holding down the shift key for instant vaporization.

By default, Windows sends deleted items to the recycle bin before removing them, which means that you have to take the second step of emptying the bin before they're truly (mostly) gone. And that means if you accidentally delete an item, you have a second chance to recover it. Unless the...
