    Hi, I hope my question has not been answerd yet, don´t want to bother anyone:

    I use a USB-Flash Drive between my Mac and the PC´s at University. I can´t seem to delete the "Recycler"-file from the USB-Driver.

    It wouldnt be a problem if just the file was visible, but after deleting all files and docs I still don´t have the free space I need.

    What can I do?

    Thanks very much,

    If there's nothing on the disk reformat it with Disk Utility. To do that click on the disk in the left hand side in Disk Utility, then choose the Erase tab and set the format to MS-DOS/FAT, then press the Erase button.
