    Hi all..

    I am unable to remove this file.

    If i knew where is was on the Mac I would use Terminal, but Get Info shows no info.

    In the Finder can you select Show Status bar from the view menu?
    It should show the path in the status bar when you click on the file.
    Then delete.

    Does clicking the file and hitting Command-R (Open Enclosing Folder) show it's location?

    If you haven't already done so, begin by restarting your Mac. That resolves many problems with deleting files. The file may already be gone.

    For problems deleting items or emptying the trash, you may find some useful ideas here:

    Another helpful tip is that you can drag a file from a Finder window to a Terminal window to copy its filename. ;)
