I'm trying to free up space on an external drive, and after deleting a bunch of stuff, it's still showing very little actual free space. I went to the trash can, but can't seem to delete the files there other than by emptying the entire trash.
Am I missing something? What's the point of having a "staging area" for stuff you (probably) want to delete, if you can't get rid of the files in it individually? The drive will be used on an embedded system, so just "putting files in the trash" doesn't actually make space on the drive, as far as the consuming device is concerned.
