How to know where a file in the trash came from

Hello,

Subject about says it all.
How do I know what path an item in my trash was deleted from?
Is there a way to see this path information as a column in Thunar?

For an example I have 12 local.yaml files from various different projects, that I removed around the same time a couple of weeks ago, but now I want to restore just 2 of them and if I could tell where each file came from this would just be super quick.

Cheers!

Open the trash in Thunar file manager select a file and look at the Status bar.
It is in the bottom of the Thunar file manager and you'll see "Original path: /patho/to...".
If the "Status Bar" not enabled go to View > Status bar
