How do I use the Recycle Bin?

You can delete the folders you have created and/or the items they contain at any time. When you inititally delete a folder or folder item, Lexis Advance Quicklaw moves the folder or item to the Recycle Bin. It remains in the Recycle Bin for up to 30 days. During that time, you can restore it to its original location or permanently delete it. After it remains in the Recycle Bin for 30 days, Lexis Advance Quicklaw automatically deletes it permanently.
