I am implying that your issue is user error- your system has a limitation, in that you do not have a large enough SSD to be lazy about deleting things; your habit needs to change if your system doesn't.
Beyond that, you can go to the individual categorized folders inside your User directory- pictures, music, etc.- and literally tell them to move to another location. They're instantly and seamlessly mapped.

Actually not true; What you are talking about is deletion (shift+delete) where the file system actually deletes the file and allocates the space as "free" as per your description. The recycle bin is a folder where items are moved to and compressed.malicious wrote:The OP may be misunderstanding how file systems work.
When a file is deleted, the data doesn't go anywhere; the space is merely marked as available for reuse. Until that space is overwritten, it's possible to recover the old data and the Recycle Bin is just a user-friendly interface for this recovery. There is no separate storage involved.
