I clicked on the "Don't not ask again" check-box of the dialog that was asking whether I'm sure I want to move files to the Trash, but now I've changed my mind and I'd rather have that back.

But I don't know where this setting is stored. How can I return to the default behavior?

I'm assuming you're talking about Dolphin file manager.

The setting you're looking for is
ControlConfigure Dolphin...GeneralConfirmationsMoving files or folders to trash
