Recycle Bin

The InfoWorks ICM Recycle Bin is a holding area for files and folders that have been deleted from the Master Database tree view of the Explorer Window. If any items are contained in the recycle bin, an asterisk in brackets (*) is displayed to the right of the icon.


The InfoWorks ICM Recycle Bin's icon does not indicate whether there are items in the Recycle Bin.

Database items are stored in the Recycle Bin before being permanently deleted from the Master Database or restored to their original location.


The Explorer Window toolbar can be used to show item details, sort items or find items. Please refer to the Explorer Window topic for details on the functionality available from the toolbar.

Popup menu

A context menu is available for all items.

Each of these options are described in detail in the sections below.

Like for any other database item, you can view the properties of a deleted database item and hide / unhide a Recycle Bin database item, as described in Working with Database Items.
