I am using fstab to automount a NTFS dive... but I can not get the trash folder to work....

The line when I auto mount in fstab is:

/dev/sdc1 /media/Data ntfs-3g defaults,uid-1000,locale=en_US.utf8 0 2

My user ID is 1000 when I do id -u USERNAME.

I have tried to make a dir called .Trash-1000 and also tried .Trash on the root of the NTFS drive... and I chmoded it.

You have uid-1000. It should be uid=1000.
