    Hi

    I've got 2 items in my Trash can which wont go away when I empty it. Ive even tried rebooting and then doing it but no luck.

    How can I permanently delete these items? I think I did it once before.. something to do with Terminal.

    Thanks

    rm -r .Trash/

    make sure you want to get rid of them.

    funny, i had the exact same problem yesterday. all you need to do is to boot up with you tiger install disk, select disk utility from tools in the menu bar and repair you volume. after that you'll be able to delete the two files.
