    Hi,

    Since El Capitan whenever I want to delete a file from my external drives (HD or USB key) using CMD+BACKSPACE I get this warning:
    "are you sure you want to delete...."

    With Maverick/Yosemite it never happend.

    How can I turn it off?

    PS: does not appear when I delete file in the mac HD

    What if it is the default policy in El Capitan? However I don't remember I have seen such pop up when deleting files on my external HD.

    That's odd, it works for me. External HD, USB, I have no warning if I uncheck the option.
