Forum Question: Disk Space on a Flash drive After Deleting Files

Hi. I have noticed that if I use a flash drive formatted with FAT32 on my MAC OSX does not free up space after deleting files from it.But, if I use it with windows and delete files from it I can see the freed up disk space. Whats the solution ?????

    Are you emptying the trash? After you throw away files on the drive, you need to empty the trash to really delete them and free up space.
