    Wasn't sure where exactly to post this.... but here goes

    I have 128mb flashdrive and I have say 80mb on it. I want to free up space...so I delete all the 80mb.

    but on my mac (macbook pro) it shows that the flashdrive only has 48mb free STILL even after I delete EVERTYHING

    Why is this? Can someone please help

    I realize that on a PC you can choose folder options and do something on the lines of "show hidden files" which on a flashdrive will allow you to delete hidden files that are taking up space. But on a mac how do you do this....or at least just get back to 128 mb free of space

    thanks

    Empty the Trash (on your macbook with the USB drive in place and mounted)
