Does deleting a file from an External Hard drive connected to a pc copy the file to the pc if its in the PC recycle bin? How do I set my external to permantly delete files by not sending them to my pc hard drive?

It's not sending it to any other drive, each one has own "Recycle bin" it just shows in common RB link.
In RB properties you can set sizes for each drive and also to turn it off for those drives. Only problem is that external drives may get different letter every time you connect them.
