"Delete all files" Should send to trash or recycle bin

When you right click on a virtual machine in the main interface and select "Remove..." from the menu you get an option to "Delete all files". This function should just move the files to the trash / recycle bin rather than directly removing them so that a user has a way to recover the files later on if they choose to do so.

I don't agree. Virtual disk files are quite big and I would prefer to immediately remove these files. And the user will always be asked if he wants to delete the files.
