I'm using the french version so my translations could be wrong.
Some drives are showing a warning signal and the log tells that the folder is not supporting the trash so the files could be unrecoverable. It's not preventing from synchronizing but I don't like to see that. Is there a way to not have this?
Thank you.

I suppose by Trash you mean the Recycle Bin.
Most external- and network-drives do not support a Recycle Bin, or at least not in the same way as Windows does for its internal drive(s).
If you set the FFS Delete Files method (in Synchronization settings, F8) to Permanent, you will not get these warnings anymore (but files to be deleted will not be moved to the Recycle Bin, even on drives that do support a Recycle Bin). Alternatively, you can use the Versioning method. There you can define a user selected location to move deleted files to.
