I just remembered this (I used Symantec products from 2000-2006) and thought that I might remind some users.

Symantec/Norton products have that phantom Recycle Bin where items appear to be deleted from your system, but in reality they are just stored somewhere else. This results in hard drive space appearing to shrink (mysteriously) and can be aggravating to the user.

My advice: Do not enable such in your version of your Symantec product. There are options to disable the feature in the program settings.
