Hi Everybody;
I am running osx 10.6.8 on a macbook pro.
when i plug external drives and with finder i remove items by trashing them (dragging the item in the bin) the item disappear from finder, but the available space value of the external drive do not change!..
is like i have never removed them..

How can I solve this?

QUOTE Thanks
