Delete button now bypasses the Trash

I have the delete button on my toolbar and use it all the time. Recently (in the last day or so?) when I press it I get a pop-up saying "WARNING! This action bypasses the Trash. You cannot undo this action."

Is there a setting to control this? Or is it a system preference that I have unknowingly changed that effects the behaviour of the delete button?

    I noticed this as well. I customized my toolbar to replace the "Delete" button with the "Move to Trash" button (is this new?). That seemed to do the trick, preventing the message and moving the file to the Trash.

    Good luck!

    Thanks Lynsey, I've done that now.

    Hi Andy,

    Lynsey is correct. Move to Trash and Delete are two separate interactions. Delete bypasses the trash, while Move to Trash places the item in the normal Trash can.
