Issue 1:

Microsoft windows RecycleBin should have two levels.

RecycleBin Level
and like SuperRecycleBin Level

Everything you put on the RecycleBin can remain there as it is today.
but when you empty the RecycleBin it should Move the Files to the SuperRecycleBin
where there it only get deleted when computer decide it need this space.
This way you can save files that you accidently deleted...
its like a recovery RecycleBin but it doesnt take any resource from the computer so why not...
Also is should stop looking like a TrashCan because when you throw there you'r family pictures
It feels a bit bad to put them in the Trash dont it!!
Should be something more friendly like I don’t know , an exit door… you guys think about that.

Issue 2:
My documents should not be forced to be in C
They should let user choose where to put it.
Many people format there computers while all there info is in stupid my documents… on C

Your documents are forced to be on C? How's that?

Regarding deletion of files and recovering them later: At least for dev I use a code repository where you always can recover everything. Might be a good idea for documents as well?

How to Move the My Documents Folder

I think all pigeons should wear shoes. Especially this time of year. And they should be made to carry little sponges so they can clean up if they poo on cars.

(don't knock it - it's on a par with your trashcan idea)

noo... your pigeons idea is great you should go for it before someone else does.

On XP it's very easy change the my documents folder, just a case
of right clicking on the folder in windows explorer and changing
the folder that "my documents" points to. It's not a hack but an option.
I presume win7 and Vista have the same option.

I see..

Its not that im using the users folder my self for my files.
its just that many people does.
