Isn't a 25% icon even with 1bit file better to now that there is one in bin?Onion EmoticonHypnosis..Onion
Also plz add option to double click to open bin.
If I put mouse over a transparent part and then move it slightly the mouse hover to select the app is disabled, while no mouse button works either.

You need to fill the recycle bin to at least 25% before it'll change the icon. You aren't doing anything wrong and the program is working correctly. Unless, of course, you have added several GBs of trashed files to the recycle bin and the icon hasn't changed...

For some reason the contents of the bin don't show in the icon.....seems to work ok, but always an "empty" bin shows.

I made an app like this at tone time, and the creator of an app like this caused me all sorts of hell by screaming that he had the idea first, and that i copied his app and stole his idea. I do not remember if it was the creator of minibin, but just be careful, that argument may pop up at some time.

Anyway, I removed my version (i was tired of the nagging messages) and I am glad to see that you have made this!

Does your version have the ability to count files in the normal Bin, and if more than or equal to a set number, then to auto-clean the whole bin? I had that, but alas, I have lost my source, and I am to lazy to re-code it, due to the fussing as mentioned above. If not, then feel free to use that idea to add in a new feature to your app :D

Downloading the TrayBin now, i am sure that I will find it very useful! Good job!

Haven't received any messages from the creator of MiniBin so I'm not worried about it. There's plenty of room for more than one program that does similar things. To answer your question, TrayBin does display the total amount of files in the recycle bin and file size of the recycle bin but at this time doesn't offer an auto-clean feature. It won't be hard to add that as an option and if I have time I'll add that in.


Thanks for the suggestion and hope you enjoy using the program.

Nothing lately. I started to add language support a while back but didn't have time to finish it. I might try to find a spare hour or two to finish it at some point. I'll update the page when there's something new to report.

Trying this on windows 8 RTM, works fine, except for the drag and drop. I can't seem to drag anything to traybin :(. Also, everytime I save settings, it gives me an error.

I can't really support Windows 8 at the moment because I don't have it installed. I suspect, though, that some of the APIs that are currently use for drag-and-drop might have changed between Windows 7 and 8 RTM.

In regards to the error, I would need to know what the error message says before I can offer any help for that.

You need to update the transition animation when users delete files. Hope in next release. Awesome App

laushung Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2012  Hobbyist Interface Designer
I apologize but I'm not sure what you mean. There isn't any transition animation. When the user deletes a file, it checks the percentage used of the recycle bin. The current usage is polled every second so it should always display accurate information.

Let me give you a brief description of what is happening and how TrayBin determines what image to display. At 0% it displays the empty image. From 1% to 25% it displays the 25.png image. And so forth. There is a chance when dealing with files with extremely small file sizes (less than 1 MB) and recycle bin sizes in the gigabytes that the space used will still be 0% even though there are files in the recycle bin.

I hope this clears up any confusion you might have had.

I know, but that wasn't what I want to say. Animation likes you says, is working good. But I want to talk about the tray icon. Sometimes there is a big white square appears for a while then disappears. That is the thing I wanted to say, it's not like these other apps that you'd created. Maybe it's one of bugs. I hope you could understand my mean. Thanks.

Ah, now that is a bug. Sorry, saying 'animation' threw me off because, like I said before, there aren't any animations.

Telling me "Sometimes there is a big white square appears for a while then disappears." is a bit more descriptive and lets me know exactly what issues you are experiencing. I will look into the possible causes of this issue and get back to you if I find a fix.

From what I can gather this is caused by custom visual styles.

I found a bug. You have to point and click with cursor a little lower on the icon if you want to acces the TrayBin. Love your work though.

That unfortunately is a side-effect of the drag-and-drop technique. I'll look into possibly making it a bit more seamless in future updates.

The program is in the download file. Everything that is needed is included in the .zip file. Settings are saved to the UserData folder so it's not completely portable but I could save settings to an .ini file if that is something users would want.
