    Hello,
    I have MB Pro Unibody 5.1. I have switched Superdrive with the WD 750 Gb hard disk. The problem is that every file i delete doesn't go to trash, it is deleted immediately with the popup message explaining it(This will erase file immediately. This cannot be undone).
    What is wrong ?
    Deleting files from system SSD is normal.

    Please help.

    Nothing is wrong. That's normal behavior for an external drive.

    Weird. When I delete a file from my external firewire drive it goes to the trash. Once there I can restore it to its original location.

    Are you meaning this is normal behavior for the SuperDrive slot only?

    I dont remember, but I think that earlier second hard disk (in superdrive bay) was using trash. Maybe turning off privileges (ignore access rights to this disk) will help ?

    I have found out SPOTLIGHT is not indexing this disk also. :( what is wrong ?!?!?!

    Anyone knows the solution ?

    Incorrect. It is normal/true if it is a drive/volume that is say hooked up to another Machine or a Time Capsule's internal hard disk, network storage, etc.
    Not true for firewire/usb drives directly connected to the machine you are deleting from. OR from secondary internal drives.

    It sounds like the drive isnt being recognized locally. Id definitely reconnect it internally if its replacing the SuperDrive. Repair the Drive Permissions on the 750
