Moving item to a different vault via Shared vault resulted in items in recycle bin

I have upgraded my personal account to a family one.
Some of the items in my personal vault needed to be moved to a family member.
To do this i copied them into the shared vault

New Family member logged into 1Password app with own credentials and moved items from shared vault into own private vault.
This resulted in the same amount of items in the recycle bin.

Can these items be deleted?

    Hi @swissis

    I apologize for the delayed reply. Indeed; moves between vaults in 1Password are actually a 'copy then delete' under the hood. You can delete the items from the recycle bin by emptying the trash.

    1. Sign in at
    2. Select the vault that contains the items you want to delete
    3. Select the Trash from the bottom of the left-hand sidebar
    4. Select Empty Trash at the bottom of the page

    I hope that helps!
