where do deleted attachments go?

I added some attachment to various transactions. Now I've noticed that I have mixed them up. How do I switch them about?
I've deleted them and thought I could recover and reassign to the correct transaction. However, they are not to be found in the Window delete folder. Any suggestions?

I've deleted the source documents. Using latest MD. Window 11

Thanks, Stan

    If you’re using MD sync, then they don’t actually ever get deleted.

    With sync off you can delete them.

    They will never go to the deleted folder

    Use extension toolbox to extract and create a report/log of attachments.

    Not using MD sync (not sure what that is).

    Will try extension toolbox.

    Using Toolbox.
    Found Extract attachments to folder button. Will this in anyway remove the attachments completely?
    I don't think it will, but just to make sure I don't lose any "good" attachments.

    Nope. It’s read only.

    If your not using sync, then when you delete attachments they will just disappear.
