How to configure Lost+Found?
I would like to know how to configure lost+found in Linux.
The purpose is that any files or folders I delete should go to this folder, so that I can retrieve it...
Something like a "Recycle Bin" in Windows .

lost+foung is a part of ext2/ext3 files system and this folder is created for peposes of the file system it has nothing common with R.bin in Windows. If U use DE like KDE or Gnome - it has built-in %-) bin
if now - there is an option in MidnightCommander - called "safe delite" just configure it in the way you want it

Do you mean I need to have MidnightCommander to configure lost+found ?

lost and found
I believe l&f is where linux sticks unknown files and fragments when there is drive problem. Its like when you run scandisk on windows and it asks if you want to save unknown clusters to a file.

use KDE and feel comfortable
