I've bought a SanDisk Cruzer Titanium USB Flash Drive, and to test its speed I copied a largish file to it, and then deleted it by dragging to the Trash.

However, Finder shows me that the space used for the file has not been recovered, even though it has disappeared from the file list. The drive is now virtually full.

Am I doing something wrong? I haven't used these drives before.
