cannot delete files on 10.7.5
Every time i'm trying to delete a folder or a file, finder prompts for my user password and the file/folder disappears but it doesn't go in trash and the space is not freed up from the hd.
I tried with verify/repair disk permissions but it didn't help.
I didn't make any changes before this, everything worked normal.

For problems deleting items or emptying the trash, you may find some useful ideas here. Be sure to restart your Mac, as the files may be already deleted.

fixed with this:
1. Reboot the computer.
2. Login with the troubled user account
3. Open 'Terminal'
sudo rm -frv ~/.Trash
Note: This removes the old ".Trash" directory and all files and folders in it.
mkdir -v ~/.Trash
Note: This creates a new ".Trash" directory in your home folder.
Note: This kills/restarts Finder
5. Close Terminal.
6. Reboot Computer.
