hi , plz i'm looking for an answer, i used my usb drive on a friend's laptop and told him to delete the files to free space... he did and the files are still there on the usb flash drive! * are those pictures on the trash folder in his laptop? * if they are, can he access them and view them even without the flash drive plugged in? and restore them? * why can't i delete them? the trash can was not emptied and it was a normal delete not a permenant one.
