Big problem with USB Pen Drives!!!

Bug #77262 reported by Navegante on 2006-12-27
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

There is a big problem in Ubuntu with the USB Flash Drives.

When the user deletes files in an USB Flash Drive, Ubuntu creates a "Trash Bin" (called " .Trash1000) that uses a lot of space.

This "Trash Bin" is invisible in Linux, but in can be viewed in Microsoft Windows. An screenshot of this "Trash Bin" is available here (

If an user deletes a file in an USB Pen Drive should be deleted definitively.
