    Guys,

    Anyone know how to fix this problem!

    I have a 32gb usb set up just for recording, I have it named HDD/Movie....epg and time shift are saved on another usb. The problem I have is every time I delete a recording from my trashcan my USB never returns to its original capacity, i.e my usb was 98% when I recorded an hour length program in HD which brought me down to 69%(too much space used?) once I deleted the file from the trashcan and checked an hour later my USB was only back to 89%

    Any help is appreciated

    There is a setting somewhere so deleted files won't go to trashcan they will just be deleted. Or just get a bigger hard drive 500gb are fairly cheap now.

    If you have timeshift enabled that will eat drive space.

    Timeshift is setup on a different usb....it works if I reboot the box but surely it shouldn’t come to that?
