I have just purchased a Buffalo MiniStation 500GB, USB 2.0 Portable HDD. I am using it on Windows XP Home SP3. The drive came pre-formatted with FAT32.
I notice that when I delete files, it asks me if I want to send them to a Recycle Bin. I had thought that external devices (flash/hard drives etc.) did not utilise the Recycle Bin - it was just for internal drives.
So why is there a working Recycle Bin on the drive? If I format the drive to NTFS, will I still have a working Recycle Bin or not on the drive?
