MacMini External Drive 0 items < 1% available

Macmini attached USB drive 'Data' partition shows 0 items, 114.6 Gb size, 854 Mb available.

iTunes folder (62 Mb) was dragged from 'Data' to Trash (Finder says it's there).

How do I free 114.6 Gb in 'Data' Partition?

Make sure the external drive is connected. Then click on the desktop to make sure you are in Finder and drag down the Finder Menu to Empty Trash.

When you delete items or put them in the trash, the drive space is not freed up until you empty the trash.
