NAME

       vfs_recycle - Samba VFS recycle bin

SYNOPSIS

       vfs objects = recycle

DESCRIPTION

       This VFS module is part of the samba(7) suite.

       The vfs_recycle intercepts file deletion requests and moves the affected files to a
       temporary repository rather than deleting them immediately. This gives the same effect as
       the Recycle Bin on Windows computers.

       The Recycle Bin will not appear in Windows Explorer views of the network file system
       (share) nor on any mapped drive. Instead, a directory called .recycle will be
       automatically created when the first file is deleted and recycle:repository is not
       configured. If recycle:repository is configured, the name of the created directory depends
       on recycle:repository. Users can recover files from the recycle bin. If the
       recycle:keeptree option has been specified, deleted files will be found in a path
       identical with that from which the file was deleted.

       This module is stackable.

OPTIONS

       recycle:repository = PATH
           Path of the directory where deleted files should be moved.

           If this option is not set, the default path .recycle is used.

       recycle:directory_mode = MODE
           Set MODE to the octal mode the recycle repository should be created with. The recycle
           repository will be created when first file is deleted. If recycle:subdir_mode is not
           set, MODE also applies to subdirectories.

           If this option is not set, the default mode 0700 is used.

       recycle:subdir_mode = MODE
           Set MODE to the octal mode with which sub directories of the recycle repository should
           be created.

           If this option is not set, subdirectories will be created with the mode from
           recycle:directory_mode.

       recycle:keeptree = BOOL
           Specifies whether the directory structure should be preserved or whether the files in
           a directory that is being deleted should be kept separately in the repository.

       recycle:versions = BOOL
           If this option is True, two files with the same name that are deleted will both be
           kept in the repository. Newer deleted versions of a file will be called "Copy #x of
           filename".

       recycle:touch = BOOL
           Specifies whether a file's access date should be updated when the file is moved to the
           repository.

       recycle:touch_mtime = BOOL
           Specifies whether a file's last modified date should be updated when the file is moved
           to the repository.

       recycle:minsize = BYTES
           Files that are smaller than the number of bytes specified by this parameter will not
           be put into the repository.

       recycle:maxsize = BYTES
           Files that are larger than the number of bytes specified by this parameter will not be
           put into the repository.

       recycle:exclude = LIST
           List of files that should not be put into the repository when deleted, but deleted in
           the normal way. Wildcards such as * and ? are supported.

       recycle:exclude_dir = LIST
           List of directories whose files should not be put into the repository when deleted,
           but deleted in the normal way. Wildcards such as * and ? are supported.

       recycle:noversions = LIST
           Specifies a list of paths (wildcards such as * and ? are supported) for which no
           versioning should be used. Only useful when recycle:versions is enabled.

EXAMPLES

       Move files "deleted" on share to /data/share/.recycle instead of deleting them:

                   [share]
                path = /data/share
                vfs objects = recycle
                recycle:repository = .recycle
                recycle:keeptree = yes
                recycle:versions = yes
