    The strangest thing just happened to me.

    I plugged a Lexar JumpDrive into my USB hub then browsed the internet for a few minutes. Before closing my Safari browser, I noticed that my trash can was full, so I right clicked on the Trash Can to empty it. After about half way through the deleting process, I noticed that there were several thousand files that were getting erased, so I quickly aborted the emptying process.

    To my dismay, the files that were getting deleted from the Trash can were those on my Lexar JumpDrive. For some strange reason, plugging in the JumpDrive loads the files into my Trash can! Now I've just accidentally erased several thousand files.

    Why on earth did the JumpDrive load into the Trash Can, and is there any hope in resurrecting those deleted files??

    There is definitely hope. There are a lot of programs that can do that, just search on google for them.
