In MacOS Catalina, Apple renamed Trash to Bin! Since then when removing a photo, it cannot move to Trash, the only option you have is to permanently delete.

Thanks for reporting.
What happens when you select "Delete from Disk?"

I am not able to reproduce the issue. 

Thanks,
Sunil

Hi,

I choose, remove photo and then delete from disk. At that point it says

"The files are on a volume that does not support Trash. Would you like to permanently delete item?"

And that it is the only possibility.

Mehtap,
It could be a problem with the file permission.
We are not able to see the issue with all files.

Could you please verify the file permission?
Right-click the file you want to delete from Finder and select Get Info > Sharing & Permission.
Do you see read/write permission for the account with which you currently logged in?

Thanks,
Sunil

Hi Sunil,

The file permissions are okay. However, my photos are in a directory on the iCloud Drive.

Lightroom seems to complain about the Volume.

Kind regards
Mehtap

Oh, thanks. Interesting because until Catalina, I did not have this behaviour.

Wonder if it's a Catalina bug. Another user reported a similar problem back in June (near the top, search for 'trash' or 'icloud'): https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/macos-catalina-10-15-bugs-and-bug-fixes.2183833/page-7

I'm having the same problem deleting a photo in LR Classic that's stored in the iCloud.  Message says " These files are on a volume that does not support Trash".  I have no problem deleting files on iCloud in other apps (i.e. Photo, etc)

Mehtap,
Please see if you are able to delete a photo that's in your local drive.

Thanks,
Sunil

"In MacOS Catalina, Apple renamed Trash to Bin!"

For reference by future readers: Mac OS 10.15 (Catalina) renamed Trash to Bin for the UK, and it may have renamed it to Bin for Australia in 10.14.  It remains "Trash" in the US:

I tried to move photos to Trash in Adobe Bridge. There is no problem there. I do not think that this is Catalina bug, but a bug in the Lightroom Classic.
