Hello Reborn,

The Recycle Bin is really only just a reference of the files as to be deleted when you empty the Recycle Bin. Instead each file in the Recycle Bin is actually still stored at it's original location until the Recycle Bin is emptied. Each internal HDD has a $Recycle.bin file that references and links the files from that HDD that were placed in the Recycle Bin to have them all from all HDD's displayed in the Recycle Bin.

On external HDD's, deleted files are not placed (referenced) in the Recycle Bin and are permanently deleted instantly instead.

Hope this helps some,
