Iamgoingtotrytoansweryourquestionasconciselyaspossible.Simplyput,GoogleDriveTrash
(online)willhaveacopyofyourfilesyoudeletedasa'backup'.Itdoesgiveyouafailsafe.Tofreeup
spaceyouwillwanttoemptyyourGoogleDriveTrash.

Afteryouemptyyourtrash(online)filescanberecoveredforupto25days.(Evenfurtherfailsafe).

Youareabsolutelycorrectwithhowthesystemworks.Mostpostsregarding'lost'filesareeasilyfixedby
usingtheaboverecoverylink.

Ifyouwant,andyoushouldhave"backup"copiesofyourGoogleformattedfiles,youcanuseGoogle
Takeouttoreally"backup"yourfiles.DownloadyourdataAccountsHelpnotethatGoogleTakeout
convertsGoogleformatteddocumentstoMSOfficeformat.
