    Recently, a hidden folder appeared itself on my card.
    It is named "Recycled" and as the name says, anything I delete goes to it.
    I delete the folder so I can access the memory being taken, but when I delete anything new the folder comes back.
    How do I stop this from happening, and just have it where when I delete stuff it's gone instantly?
    I want to be rid of this accursed folder for good.

    It's the recycled folder of Windows you can hide it or ignore it.

    It wasn't on here before, and it's a hidden folder.
    Anything I delete moves into it and just sits there until I go into the hidden folder and delete it, or delete the hidden folder.

    I haven't switched computers or anything, it just suddenly starting happening a few days ago. [​IMG]

    I got this too, I formated the card and it disappeared [​IMG]

    copy your files to HDD, format to FAT (or FAT16), and put them back.

    I got rid of it!
    Since it was hidden I went E:\Recycled and right clicked for properties.
    I froze a box that said something about deleting from the whole drive at once instead of using recycle bin.
    Then I delete the folder using DSorganize.
    Now it's back to normal. [​IMG]
