    Hi, my father just switched to Mac, he has an iMac, so far everything has been quite smooth, however there is something he always tells me that is happening to him.

    He says that sometimes he can't find some files, and then he checks the trash bin and everything is in there.
    What I find really odd is that:
    1) It happens quite often, (maybe twice a month)
    2)Its the only person that has ever told me that it happens (and I know a lot of mac users)
    3)I cant find anybody else on the internet that reports the same problem.

    So my question is: Do anybody know if this is a common problem?, personally I think its a problem with the user, what's your opinion?

    The good side of the grass.
    I have it happen sometimes when I restart and don't save things proper. They'll show up in trash in a Recovered Files folder.
