    .Spotlight-V100


    Is that folder safe to remove. I understand it is the Spotlight index, but I want to completely remove the index and re-index. So, is it safe to remove? Thanks.

    The trash does not empty when I go to remove the file from the Trash.

    Force empty using Option.

    I normally do it via Terminal using rm.
