I copied a file over to my brother's flash drive, but deleted a few files for him while I was there. He was about to leave when I realised my recycle bin couldn't be emptied. I collared him and reinserted the stick and the bin cleared no problem.
So... I'm left with the question of what do I do if he had left?
The recycle bin full icon keeps displaying until I clear it with the connected device there. If I remove the device, is there an easy way of clearing the bin so it appears empty again if I don't have the device to hand and what impact will that have on the device if I reattach it?
