Trash will be Deleted
Starting October 13, 2020, Google Drive is making a change so that its trash behaves more consistently with the rest of Google applications (such as Gmail) with regards to automatic deletion. This means that any file that is put into Google Drive’s ‘My Drive’ trash will begin to be automatically deleted after 30 consecutive days in the trash. Items in trash will still continue to consume quota and your storage will still continue to be shared across Google Drive, Gmail, and Google Photos.
