How to prevent Ubuntu from creating a .Trash-1000 folder when deleting files from a USB flashdrive
- Don’t use the delete button only (Otherwise the .Trash-1000 folder will be created)
- Press the key combination shift+delete together to delete then Ubuntu won’t create a .Trash-1000 folder. (Note: If you delete files and folders this way they are gone forever!)
NOTE: This has been tested on Ubuntu 9.04.
