complete windows reinstall and trashcan not empty. Due to external harddrive?
I just made a complete reinstall of my winXP. Right after all the upgrades were done, I put some file into the trashcan and tried to empty it.
And what was not my surprise when:
1) I was told that some "old file" could not be deleted because the folder was not empty (or something along these lines).
2) I was asked if I was sure I wanted to delete some "old folder".
"Old file" and "old folder" were both part of the previous install, and since I completely reformated my harddrive, I don't see how they could've persist. Could it be due to an external drive where they once belonged? And if yes, how can I solve such issues?
