Google Drive will now delete items in your trash after 30 days

There’s something new to watch out for in Google Drive. For years, if you “delete” something in Google Drive (or any other G Suite core app including Docs, Sheets, and Slides), Google would put the file in Trash but not fully delete it.

That’s changed now. If something’s been in your Google Drive trash for more than 30 days, Google will now automatically delete it.

So, if you’ve relied on Google Drive trash to bring files back later, make sure to have another workflow now!
