    First of all, A very good idea. Nextly, if you are making a recycle bin, you need not worry about where the files are going, Just change the path of the action performed by the function delete. Redirect it to your folder and you will see everything there once deleted. This is one idea. I dont know what else you have in mind.

    I am not sure about how actually delete works in Androids, So I cannot comment on it. I jst gave an idea which might be feasible and helpful. For detailed info on delete function, you will have to Google it and see what results we get.

    First of all , a very good and innovative idea.As said by Nayan Goenka try to nake it simple and feasible.Also consider building a recovery software for mobiles.I havent heard about it .If you can make a recycle bin it will be a great relief for android users as I had also deleted some file accidently.We know that there are some software out there but we need a computer for that.
