Recycle Bin Context Menu

Positive Comment by snakyjake3
about Hardwipe Nov 2014

My preference is to send file to the Windows Recycle Bin, and later have them destroyed. Therefore I like having the Recycle Bin context menu.

But I wish:

A) A scheduler.
B) I don't need the "standalone" interface.
C) None of the other stuff...just the Recycle Bin features.
