Access Obsidian Trash from within the app

Now that Obsidian has builtin support for trash, I think it’d be nice to have a way access the trash in the app with three options:

  1. View the files in trash
  2. Restore one or multiple files from trash
  3. Empty trash


Desktop isn’t really an issue, but now we have mobile Obsidian (I’m on iOS/iPad OS), it would be nice to be able to see and act on the .trash folder in the mobile app.

  1. Setting to delete files after 30 days automatically would also be nice

Much needed feature


Hey @Rishi, I’m surprised it’s not a feature after over 2 years.

I’m new on the forum. Does like = upvote?

Thanks for bringing this up!

Yes you can like it to bring it the dev’s attention. But it’s not guaranteed that the most popular ones will be implemented first.


I too would definitely value being able to view the trash inside the application
I know I have a lot of empty "Untitled"s in there :sweat_smile:

You too??!?!

Just kidding, as it’s obviously a problem for everyone: it’s just too easy to create Untitled notes that never get filled.
