Trash wont empty
Posted 03 April 2011 - 10:33 AM
I have tried restarting, holding down the option key, even tried a secure delete, but still the same error code... any body got any clues.
I haven't emptied in months, so I am guessing there is probably a good 4 to 6 gig of junk in it.
I cant see that causing any problems ?

Have you done a recent PRAM reset lately?, I had this exact issue when I did this, so I did the soft reboot thing afterwards, shut down as per normal, restart hold SHIFT key until you see wheel and reboot scale, then re log in to your user account(administrator) for initial start up then try it.

mmm that was the next move, a third party software to sort it out, I was also thinking some files were missing permissions maybe, but it sounds like its working slowly, but still not an proper solution.

It took it's sweet time about (40 minutes) but it finally worked, my last step before a format, was to jump into terminal, and type in some code I found to force the trash to empty.

$ rm -rf ~/.Trash/
If you restart the finder afterwards the trash empties and everything goes back to normal.
