    - Is it possible to Delete to recycle bin when having and external backup medium such as HD or USB flash drive?

    - Is it ok to have a usb flash drive as a full backup medium? I am looking to get a 2TB usb flash drive as my main backup medium!


    @zx10guy @737Simpilot Due to your experience, would be good to have your insight on this if possible.

    Most of time deletion from an external drive will NOT go to the Recycle Bin.

    I would never use a small flashdrive, thumbdrive or what ever for a System backup.
    I do not think there is one much larger than 64 GB

    That said if you mean a USB external hard drive, then that is way to go.
    I have been using them for years.

    Did you check the prices ? An external Usb hard drive would be much cheaper and probably more reliable.
