Re: Storage folders/recovered items

Yes, I think they are left, [I can't find the account options to check on
it] but why not just download and forget recovering extraneous stuff? I
think it might be related to deleting in Quick views [which is still not
fixed]. My count before compaction is now over 500 and climbing. Maybe I
can avoid wholesale recovering.
