    Retain File Names no name mangling when move/ cut from Recycle Bin


    Retain File Names without name mangling when Move/ Cut select Files from Recycle Bin to a selected location

    Retain File Names without name mangling when Move/ Cut select Files from Recycle Bin to a selected location
    Move/ Cut select Files from Recycle Bin to a selected location retaining File Names without name mangling?
    "Windows Behavior" when cutting/ pasting or drag-dropping the files to some location/ folder, all the names are mangled.
    Names are mangled like this: $REA9O58.xxx
    The only option Recycle Bin gives is:

    • Restore
      (do not wish for files to go back and mixup with other files in Original Folder) or
    • Cut
      (When pasted or Drag & Dropped to new location, the original name is mangled).


    Any way around this to put select files into other location folders from Recycle Bin?

    PS: OS: Win 8.1 x64

    Hi, as your question relates to Win 8.1, you might wish to be aware of
    Windows 8 Forums

    1. Restore - if the file name already exists in the destination folder, there is a warning dialogue offering Replace and Compare.
    2. Rt click drag 'n drop => a Move option. The name is preserved - I don't see what you're seeing. (Mangled names).

    I know. Win 8 forums are kind of half asleep these days and figured the mechanism would be same and easier to garner an answer here.

    I was doing either a
    - Rt Clk - Restore
    OR
    - left click drag ... so wasnt getting your option

    With your steps I get it with right name.

    Curious. There's nothing wrong with
    Rt click file + click Restore
    of course- that should work too.. (it does for me)

    Likewise left click + drag e.g. to the desktop.
