I've heard its because you "delete to many things" so the hard drive has to write over the deleted stuff.

Is this true?

By deleting something I mean dragging it to the recycling bin, then removing it from the recycling bin.

Just be careful what you delete. Some files are important system files.

A wise old man once told me:
"If you didn't create it, don't delete it."
