Deleting Files

Obsidian has several options for dealing with deleted files, depending on your needs.

  • By default, deleted files are sent to your system trash. Here you can use whatever means your system has for recovering files you've accidentally deleted.
  • Deleted files can be sent to a special .trash directory in your Vault. This can be useful if you want the ability to recover your Vault files separate from your system trash.
  • You can also set obsidian to just delete files without possibility of recovery.

These options can be found in Settings => Files & Links.
