It seems that XFE moves items on removable drives to the Trash folder in the User's Home folder.
I would expect that XFE should instead use a Trash folder on the removable media.
Large files on removable media take a very long time to Trash.
As a workaround, I use the permanent delete feature, but it's not ideal.
Thanks for a great file manager. It's my favorite.

    Yes, I must admit the way it is implemented is not ideal. However, I don't think a trash on a small USB key is very useful, because it wastes disk space. But if it is on a large disk, it is more justified...
    So, I'll see if I can do something...
    Thanks,
