    According to Google, its a folder thats used on with MAC's and is on any flash/usb drive that a MAC uses.
    folders are automatically created whenever a USB flash drive is connected to a computer system running an Apple Mac operating system.
    The .trashes folder on the other hand is simply a trash folder for the specific drive which is also created by Apple Macintosh computer systems. Windows users can simply delete both hidden directories to free up disk space.
    The other folder that appears is .spotlight
    Spotlight is a indexing process on the Mac that will save the information that are gathered in the .spotlight-v100 directory.
