I just lost some files off an external USB drive as I deleted the wrong folder.....DOH! On the PC I would just go to the Recycle Bin & restore, but the USB did not give me that option.
However I remembered a while back having a SanDisk USB that did allow me to Restore from the Recycle Bin so I started checking all my external drives.............
I noticed the PC 'C' drive & an external LaCie HDD is using the NTFS system, while all my other USB drives seem to be FAT or FAT32.
I also noticed that the LaCie HDD shows up on the Properties page for the Recycle Bin.....but never the USB drives.
Is this issue related to a HDD being NTFS or FAT?
I would like to avoid losing more data in the future so would be keen to hear any tips on how to avoid this!....
