1) I'm not the developer, so if you would like to make this a feature request it would be best to do so in the main thread. Even though I (as a user) am opposed to auto-deletion of recycle bin contents there are merits to your idea so it is worth mentioning there (and perhaps even searching that thread to see if others have discussed it in the past - they probably have)
2) Personally I see no need to expand the recycle function to include the additional scans and the resultant processing and read/write access resource overhead required to track drive space. In fact I’m opposed to deferring the responsibility for maintaining free space onto the recycle bin instead of on the user where I feel it belongs. Additional conveniences can be nice but IMO in this case people would allow it all to happen automatically, then find that items they need have been permanently deleted, then blame MiXplorer. To me the purpose of the recycle bin is as the last stop from which data that a user plans to delete can be easily recovered by the user, and in that context emptying it should be done manfully.
This is not to say that I disagree with the core of your idea - some sort of auto cleaning - but I would hope for a few things in this regard:
A) Completely separate from the recycle bin.
B) Include before each automatically scheduled clean-up a pop up warning with list of items scheduled for deletion, requiring user interaction to proceed.
C) Add a recycle bin size limit which warns when the bin is "full".
In any event, please don’t take my disagreement with parts of your idea as discouragement. There would certainly be others who like it as you do, as well as those who like it like I do, and it is worth opening up to more discussion and exposure to the developer in the main thread.
