    When I delete files from a USB thumb drive, it always says: 'Do you want to permanently delete this file?'

    I sometimes wish I could have seen that but on all my flash drives, it's immediately GONE as soon as I click 'Delete'.

    Try3, I want to learn from you, can you briefly give a few of those dire warnings about having Recycle Bins on USB flash drives? I can pass that wisdom onto others elsewhere.
    The warnings were were about the method used to achieve it - akin, as I recall, to re-writing part of the USB stick's firmware with the possibility of destroying it in the process.

    The only record I have left is the link Set Removable USB as Fixed - WOSHub

    It was in the hope of achieving that end point that I looked into USB stick behaviour but could find no way of doing it other than trickng them into having a recycle bin.
