Not to mention the waste of space on the floppy disk.

"Sorry - not enough room on drive to copy to."

"But why? There's only one file, and it's taking up 7 megs!"

I think the trash-folder is much more logical. If I throw a piece of paper 
into a trash can, it isn't copied somewhere behind my back. It's in the trash 
can, and I can recycle it if I want, or retrieve it later. I see no reason 
why a computer should not model this as it is in real life.
