In a dual boot system with Windows 8 and Ubuntu 18.04, two partitions (let's call it the Data drive and the Media drive) are NTFS, and are accessible to both Windows and Ubuntu. To be able to access files on those drives via Ubuntu, I had to click on the Drive icon in Nautilus and Ubuntu would mount the partition onto
/media/ and if I deleted any files from those partition, the files would go to Trash.
Since it was cumbersome to click the icon to mount it everytime, I wanted the partitions to auto-mount when I login to Ubuntu. I followed these steps and it works.
However, if I try to delete any file from the Media drive, the only file deletion option shown to me in the right-click menu is "Delete permanently".
How can I have the move to Trash option re-appear? Also I'd like to understand why it only allows permanent deletion?
