Google will apply this feature from 13th October where you don’t have to clean the trash by yourself.

As we all know, On Gmail, if we send an email into the trash, it gets deleted after 30 days. But it is not the same on Google Drive. It keeps the file indefinitely in the trash till you don’t delete it from trash yourself.

Google has made a statement in which they said “Starting October 13, 2020, we’re changing the retention policies for items in the Trash in Google Drive. With this new policy, any file that is put into a Google Drive trash will be automatically deleted after 30 days, Any files already in a user’s trash on October 13, 2020 will remain there for 30 days. After the 30-day period, files that have been in the trash for longer than 30 days will begin to be automatically deleted,”

Google said We will be showing in-app notifications in Drive and in our Editors products (Google Docs and Google Forms) starting September 29. Users will get to know once this update has been rolled out. You will see a banner on your drive app regarding the changes.

Admins can still restore items deleted from a user’s trash for up to 25 days for active users.
