Cool What about that space???

Hey there Gang!

Okay, so, I for one LOVE my USB sticks. I used to have Zip disks (in a previous incarnation of myself), 100 Meg...well..

So, I used one (a USB stick) for backups, and backups get stale, so need to get deleted. Now, I found that the stick keeps a trash can of its own, and ... how do I "put out the trash" on a stick?

Any suggestions?

I know, I should know this by now...but...

Open it in a file browser, select "View Hidden Files" and delete .Trash (and any other odds and ends that aren't needed).

This is how I clear out the trash on my sticks.
