I've been having some issues with removing files from the trash after deleting them from my external drive. So I've been following some suggestions and now I'm having another issue.

When I go to delete files, I get a message that reads: "the item 'whateveritem' will be deleted immediately. Are you sure you want to continue?"

If I say yes, it's just gone without going into the trash first. I'd like it to go into the trash first as I often go back for things I've deleted.

Any help would be great.

QUOTE Thanks
