Deleted directories on external disk appears on another external disk

Hello,
I had a directory structure on a external disk.  I deleted some directories underneath it,

Like:

Root
  --- AA
       --------BBB
  --- CCC

But now, if I connect my external driver to another computer the directory structure will be on that one (it's doing it by himself) in the above case I see the the directories AA and BBB sometimes only see directory CCC.

Also, when I connect a new external drive to my own computer the directories will be there again,

I thought it could be something to do with caching for the dvd writer, but I don't see files there.

Does someone has any idea where I can look?

I resolved the issue by doing:

1. Cleaning External (old) devices from registry

Using USBOblivion64.exe

2. Clear mounting points from registry

Cleaning unused entries at the following registry locations:
HKLM\SYSTEM\MountedDevices
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MountPoints2
HKEY_USER S-1-5-21-............
Once done, wipe free space to be sure that old data will be destroyed.  I used CCcleaner for it

you aren't doing a proper dismount before changing external drives.

Ok, but how can I delete this info so it won't be copied over on other external drives?

No old directories copied onto to the attached external (USB) devices by itself.
