They are early images that haven't sold. I don't have a problem with them being deleted. But I have never wanted my images to go to the dollar bin. I was under the impression that we would be emailed when they went. I am certain I have gotten emails in the past. Am I remembering wrong?
You should see how tedious it is to deactivate them. If someone has knows a way to check a box next to them all and do a mass delete, I would be very happy!
edited: just did a search of the forums for "deactivating dollar bin files". You should see the stuff it returned. They may have improved the search engine for photos (important) but this needs help (not so important, I guess).
