How to find the trash folder on your Android device
Assuming you’re using a standard Android device, here’s how to find the trash folder:
1. Open the “Apps” drawer. This is usually done by tapping on the icon that resembles a grid of tiny squares, located in the middle of the bottom row of your home screen.
2. Find and tap on the “Files” or “My Files” app. This will open a window showing all the storage locations on your device.
3. Tap on the storage location where you think the trash folder might be located. For example, if you think the folder might be on your internal storage, tap on the “Internal storage” option.
4. Look for a folder called “Trash” or “Recycle Bin”. If you don’t see one, try tapping on the “More” option and look for it there.
5. Tap on the trash folder to open it. You should now see all the files that have been deleted from your device.

Most Android devices don’t have a dedicated Trash folder where deleted files go. When you delete a file on your Android device, it is permanently deleted and there is no way to recover it.
However, some Android file managers have a Recycle Bin or Trash feature where you can restore deleted files. We recommend using ES File Explorer, which has a Recycle Bin feature that works well.
To access the Recycle Bin in ES File Explorer, tap on the menu icon in the top-left corner of the app and select Recycle Bin. From here, you can tap on a file to restore it, or tap the Empty Recycle Bin button to permanently delete all of the files in the recycle bin.
If your Android device doesn’t have a Recycle Bin or Trash feature, you can try using a third-party app like Dumpster or Recycle Master. These apps work similarly to the Recycle Bin on a computer, giving you a place to restore deleted files.

If you’re like most Android users, you probably don’t think much about the trash folder on your device. But if you’re running low on storage space, it’s worth taking a look at what’s in your trash folder and clearing it out.

To delete a file or folder from the trash, tap on the “Delete” icon. To restore a file or folder, tap on the “Restore” icon.
And that’s all there is to it! Clearing out your trash folder is a great way to free up some storage space on your Android device.
