Direct deletion from Lightroom, rather than to Recycle bin for SSD drives

Hey Adobe Engineers, how about giving us an option to delete without the file going to the recycle bin so that we are not writing files to our SSD drives where the recycle bin is usually located.

No files get re-written from one folder to another (the other being called the Recycling bin or the Trash, Win/Mac respectively). They are only Marked as being in there. And then when they are removed from the trash/bin they aren't really removed from the drive. The space they used is marked as being usable/empty.

Also IF Adobe allowed that there would be an uproar from people that seem to use the TRASH can as a holding area and from others that say Adobe Deleted all my images.

But if you really want it, there is a way. It's called the Splat Delete, and it's Ctrl Alt Shift Delete (Windows) / Cmd Opt Shift Delete (Mac). But be really careful what you wish for, because it does delete completely and immediately.

Thanks for that heads up about the files not actually being moved to a "recycle bin". I appreciate your time taken to reply.

If you click on your Recycle bin and select Properties you can change the space on each drive allocated to the Recycle bin. So if you set the ssd Recycle space to 0, your problem should be solved.
