sensitive data in recycle bin

If I deleted sensitive data from a second local hard drive and the deletion put the sensitive data in my Recycle Bin, does that mean that it copied the sensitive data onto my C drive?

Hi kitesurferdude,
Most drives have storage on them for the recycle bin.

Right click on the recycle bin and select properties.
If there are settings for your second drive then no it did not copy them to the C: drive

Never permit recycle bin, what is needed is rarely there, and it is a place for getting overconfident while being a place for malware to hide.

Probably and more than likely. go take a look yourself. Sensitve data especially should be removed, not just marked as deleted.
