I think it would be useful to have a 'Delete all' and a 'Recover all' option in the recycle bin section.
I also would really love to see a select all button in the recycle bin part of the one drive iOS app.
My One drive storage is full, so without adding storage I need to be able to delete files and photos from the account as needed. Please add this ability.

I love One Drive but I would like to make a suggestion. On the One drive mobile app. In the recycle bin there is no "Select All" like there is on the website.
It would be great if you could "Select All" or a button "delete all contents" in the recycle Bin. Having to select each item can be a pain if you have a lot to delete. You all have this on the online version of one drive. It would be great if this could be added.

The inability to delete multiple or all the files simultaneously from the OneDrive Recycle Bin is a significant design flaw. Was it deliberate, the idea being to reduce storage capacity of the free version as quickly as possible? if the subscription based version of OneDrive provides the same flawed design, NO WAY will I ever subscribe.
Further to this.
1. Add an option in Options section of the app "Confirm deletion actions (Y/N). This will allow the user to set if they want to see the annoying popup to delete the file.
Also, the font size for how many are selected is crazy and taking up room for action icons.. Just have the numerical value there. The word 'selected' is redundant as you know what this is each tap of a new photo.
Put the trash can on the top of the page when multiple files are selected. Right now its buried under the elipses

iOS 版 OneDrive アプリに、”ごみ箱を空にする” 機能の追加を希望
Add “Empty Recycle bin” feature to OneDrive app for iOS
現在の iOS 版 OneDrive アプリには、”ごみ箱を空にする” 機能が実装されていない。
“Empty Recycle bin” feature is not implemented on OneDrive app for iOS yet.
I hope you to implement this feature since it takes time when selecting and deleting items in a recycle bin one at a time.
Can’t believe you have to do them one by one. How stupid 😳
Empty Recycle Bin option just like how it is in the current Hotmail/mail apps should be made available to OneDrive's Recycle bin as well. I agreed with original requester.
Have had to use apple because I want to empty recycle bin which cannot be done in Microsoft.
How i wish there’s a “select all button” for the trash bin on your one drive mobile app for easy removal of items.

I had to select files one by one inside the trash bin instead of emptying it with one click. Must have!
It would be very efficient to be able to do so.
I was able to delete everything in my recycle bin on my PC but I'd like to be able to do it in IOS as well on my ipad.
I agree. I didn’t realise I had to remove them from the recycle bin one at a time.
pls give an option for clean bin at a glance ..
Please add a “delete all” option to the recycle bin on the OneDrive app. It’s annoying to have to log in to the website to do this. Seems pretty basic.
For when the option to delete all files in iOS bin?
Selecting files individually is a pain in the finger! Sending the user to the browser to do basic maintenance defeates the app purpose and existance!
Lets get this done guys, please.
It seems just natural that one would want to empty the recycle bin of deleted files. All those files still occupy space and it annoys me that the app doesn't have a feature to empty the right cycle bin.
Please add it as soon as possible!
