    FAT32 external drive issue
    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?
