If you could add in there how users can recover deleted files, I'd really
appreciate it.

Specifically, I enabled the recycle VFS module and it seems to work
properly (deleted files get moved into the subdirectory that I specified
in recycle:repository), but no "recycle bin" icon shows up in Windows
Explorer, so there's no way for users to actually restore files.

Please see my [much more detailed] post from earlier today:
