    I've downloaded Internalz a while back and finally got to messing around with this pretty cool app. I was going through the "trash" files and found basically everything I deleted over the course of my <<ahem>> pre-existence.
    I have a bunch of movies that I had deleted and it still allowed me to play them even though they are in the trash bin. How are these files still playable? The pictures that have been deleted and are in the trash bin cannot be opened but my movies are still there. Do these files in the trash take up memory?

    I dunno just some random thoughts. It kind of shocked me to be able to play those video files.

    Sounds like a Mac thing. PC's do not create a trash folder on Mass USB devices. You might try emptying the trash?

    I believe you're talking about the hidden .Trash folder. I believe that's the trash bin wheere delete thing go to. Not sure it it empties periodically or if there's some user-initiated action that empties it. Though, yes, it does use up memory still.

    Its nowhere on my Pre.

    I have a mac that I use sometimes for photoshop and I have noticed that when I delete files on SD cards it makes a Trash folder and does not actually delete them. I think that is what the OP is referring too.

    Perhaps linux does it as well? I always use my PC to delete files on my Pre maybe thats why I dont have a trash folder?

    yeah I guess so because I can't find a .Trash folder and I've never had a problem with the internal storage not going down once I've deleted something such as music or videos.I guess it's like the equivalent of a recycle bin but on a usb mass storage device.

    the .Trashes directory is right on the first screen when you open Internalz. It's just kind of bizzare to see everything I've deleted there.

    I guess this is a good place to hide your favorite pics and videos that you don't want people to see ...if that's any consolation.

    It's a mac thing. You have to hook up the pre via usb, be in USB mode AND empty the Trash in Finder to erase the items.

    I can access it right on the phone without being hooked up to my mac.

    I wish Internalz had a swipe to delete function...and also the ability to select multiple files for deletion or moving. Also I can't delete whole folders...***?

    umm.. tap and hold folders and you'll be given the options, including delete. And for deleting files, just tap brings up the menu
