SOme basic info please? What OS? What version of Camera Raw? Are you deleting from Bridge? What version of Bridge? Are the files in question on a server or NAS device? You realize that deleting from an NAS or server will delete immediately, not move to the trash?
Win XP sp2.
Accessing ACR through bridge.
Files are on a CF card mounted through a SanDisk Extreme USB reader.
I was too frustrated at the time to list them...
I'd bet this is related to attempting to treat RAW+JPG as a single file, only I can't find any option to disable this. In LR there is, but this isn't LR.
When you "convert" a file in Camera Raw, I assume you mean you put in the save queue using the Save button. The files are not actually saved until queue is processed.
Did you then just mark all the files for delete and exit the dialog while the save queue is still processing? If so, you just deleted the source files for save queue, so it cannot save the remaining files in the queue.
P.S. Why are you writing files to a CF card?
I just did an experiment. I copied some raw files to a new directory on an external hard drive.
Opened them in ACR.
Waited for the save queue to complete.
Confirmed the jpgs were created in explorer.
Marked the still selected RAW files for deletion.
About half of the JPGs are deleted, this time to the recycle bin.
I tried with different number of files, and couldn't determine the pattern of which were deleted.
If after converting I exit ACR. Then reopen and select the RAWs for deletion, the JPGs are not touched.
So, more data, but not much more sense. ACR is deleting just-converted JPG's, but not all of them, when it deletes the RAWs. If you work from a CF card, either ACR or XP is deleting not moving to the recycle bin.
