Linux Scripting problems creating 3 scripts

Hi, i am very new to linux and still having problems with it. i need to create 3 shell scripts the first one is to delete files to a dustbin directory,

the second is needed to remove the contents of the dustbin directory

the final script should be used to to restore the the files that have been moved to the dustbin back to the original directory

i have some code for the thrid script that i think may work, if there is anymore information you think you might need i will try to help

Welcome to LQ!

Perhaps you can join forces with the OP of this other thread:

Looks like you're working with the same course material.

More information we need, would include showing us the code you've currently got for your third script, as well as showing us what happens when you execute it - does it work? No? If not, show us the error messages.
