Oh dear - I should have asked that question before LOL.

Flash drive files never go into the Recycle bin - they are deleted forever when you do so. You have no problem that is quite normal. If you want to double check then copy one of the files to the desktop. It will then delete into the bin from there.

EDIT:
If you want to preserve them before deleting them just copy them over to the hard disk (to Documents, Pictures, or wherever you wish).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Right click on the Recycle Bin, click Properties, then select "Custom Size" and enter in whatever amount you want (mine is at 8135 MB) and then click Apply and see if that fixes the problem.

In the same place there should be a check box which allows you to either use the bin or permanently delete things.

Re #4.

I tried, but doesn't work
By that, do you mean the option the option is there to "remove files immediately when deleted" but it is already unchecked, or is there no option showing?

OK - thanks.

Are these files on the system drive (usually C)?
What is your current custom size?
