adevil,

Is it .trash=100 or .trash=1000?

The .trash folder is created if the drive has Linux.
This is the location where the deleted files/folders are stored.
The numbers are the User Identifier (UID=code identifying a user) of the account that created the folder.

@cottonbaal thanx for the the suggestion
but why would ubuntu/linux will store file files in D drive.
also every time i log on to ubuntu i delete these files, yet on restarting these files are back.
i changed permissions yet those files are again back in the same drive.

@devlin1888: actully i like my pc these files free.
I know you can only prevent these files to enter your pc
Once they enter, you are completely helpless.
i would welcome any suggestion or method to remove such malicious files.
yet thanx for your suggestion.

Let's take a closer look at what is going on...

Please download UsbFix:
UsbFix Download UsbFix - Free - Website Official
Save to the Desktop.

Right-click the downloaded USBFix file and select: Run as Administrator
Press: Research
This option scans all connected drives, and reports any infected Files and Folders
When done, the program closes on its own, and a report appears.
(The report file is also found at C:\UsbFix.txt)
Please post the UsbFix.txt (Research) report in your reply.


Once again, run USBFix as Administrator, but, this time, press: Listing
It creates a report of all the Folders and Files found at the root of every hard drive, partition, or removable drive connected.
Also post the UsbFix.txt (Listing) report in your reply.

They are not malicious files. They are a safety feature, you create them yourself every time you soft delete a file from a USB device (flash drive or external HDD). That's Ubuntu's way to prepare to restore the file(s) you deleted, in case something happens.

To avoid those files, not to create them, do not soft delete files from USB devices by selecting Delete. Instead, use hard Delete instead by pressing Shift + Delete in which case Ubuntu wont create .trash files.

Hi, how can I change this? Some background - this may not be the issue I need to solve at the end of the day: I believe the location is causing crashes, since I blew up lots of Library registry values (in an attempt to remove them from the OS), and I think it defaults to the library page....

Missing One-Click "Red X" File Delete
One of the things I really missed when migrating from WinXP to Win7 was the Windows Explorer "Red X" file delete icon. After so many years of having a single-click delete button I really miss it. Is there any way to get it back under Windows 7? :confused: Dick Flanagan
