I own a 1 TB Seagate External Hard Drive. Now I had some files on there that I no longer needed and when I had deleted them I thought they were gone but when I plug my E.H.D into my tv it brings up a folder called something recycle with dollar signs in the name and I can find the files thta i had deleted before how can I get rid of these files for good! I tried using CCleaner but won't allow me to scan my E.H.D I can't find this folder on a computer-Recycle with Dollar Signs in the title I can't find the folder ".Trash" Please Help.
