I have just purchased a new external portable HDD - Buffalo MiniStation 500GB, USB 2. I am using it on Windows XP Home SP 3. The drive is pre-formatted with FAT32.
I notice that when I delete files, it asks me if I want to send them to a Recycle Bin. Could you please advise why there is a working Recycle Bin on the drive? I had thought that external devices (flash/hard drives etc.) did not utilise the Recycle Bin - it was just for internal drives.
If I format the drive to NTFS, will I still have a working Recycle Bin or not on the drive?
