I have a question about deleting files from the recycling bin on an external hard drive. I use the Maxtor Basics personal storage 3200 with 160GB, and have been running low on space. After using winderstat, I see that the deleted files continue to remain in the Drive's recycle bin, despite using Windows Vista's disk cleanup. There's about 20GB of files in there and, at most, Disk cleanup only reports like 5KB. So my question is, what is the best way to delete this files?
