I have the following problem.
Every day I copy the same file to Google.
Google Drive moves the old version to trash.
In this way I fill quickly Google Drive.

How to delete data from the Google recycle bin when copying?
Or how to prevent the data being written in the bin?

If you select "permanent" instead of "recycle bin" in sync settings, this should do the trick.

I believe that a permanent deletion on the local copy does not propagate to a permanent deletion in the cloud. As far as I am aware, there is no way to do that without interacting with the cloud service directly.

FFS directly integrates with Google Drive with support for both permanent deletion and recycle bin.
