I've seen some threads for a similar problem, but mine has a slight twist to it. I have a hard drive connected through a USB enclosure that worked perfectly for over a year. I just replaced the enclosure (same make/model) and the files deleted from that drive no longer show up in the Recycle Bin. No matter how many files I delete, the Recycle Bin reads 0 items taking up 0 bytes. I checked my Recycle Bin options and the drive is registering correctly, so I don't think there are any detection issues. The box to remove files permanently when deleted is UNCHECKED for all drives and I've tried rebooting a couple times. My other drives are sending things to the recycle bin as they should, and this one is also working fine except for this one thing.
Quick notes about my system: Windows XP Pro, SP2. The drive in question is FAT32.
Appreciate your suggestions...
