For example, if you send to the "recycle bin" a dvd video, approx 4.3Gb you'll need at least that much memory in /tmp ( or ~/tmp) and your swap file space to do so(erase) "without interfering with the system memory".

It's 'IMHO' ref. to what I have gathered.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I'm still learning.

Aah!?, smaller systems may work, sacrificing system memory.
and "yes", I'm refering to the recycle bin affect on memory. GW
