I have recently been mounting my Android phone via a USB cable and have been adding and deleting files to the microSD card. However I noticed that space was not being freed up when I deleted files. It took a while to work out that whenever I delete a file they are actually being moved to a hidden folder on the card called .Trash-1000
Is this normal behaviour? I guess Ubuntu is creating some kind of recycle bin on the SD card? And if it is normal behaviour is there a way to disable this function/delete files without them being placed in the .Trash-1000 ?
