I am using a Mac with the latest version of Anki and the latest version of MacOS Monterey. I deleted unused items when checking media. I have not emptied my trash. I cannot find any of the items in the trash. Anyone know why? Also, if it were there, would it be in a folder and what would the folder be named as?
Anki’s trash folder is not the same as your OS’s trash bin. It’s a folder called
media.trash in your profile folder, whose location in turn is described here.
However, you rarely need to navigate there as Anki’s internal Check Media feature also allows you to empty the bin and restore files.
Found it, thank you so much!
