Hi all.

I have a few thumb drives (1gb / 4gb) that I need to be able to use on both PC and Mac. They work fine for accessing files etc., but I find that if I delete files on OSX to make more room, the space isn't made available. I've discovered that this is due to invisible .trashes files, which I can only see and delete by using a Windows machine. This is a right pain as that means I have to remember to clear space on drives at work before trying to copy files onto drives at home. Is there any way to ensure that when I delete files in OSX that all the associated bits are cleared as well?

Cheers in advance for someones help !
