    My iMac is running Leopard and Windows 7 RC1 in Bootcamp.

    From Leopard, I deleted some files on my Win7 partition, however, now Trash won't empty those files. It doesn't come up with any error.

    I have tried holding the Option key went emptying Trash, and have tried running repair permissions via Disk Utility.

    Any other idea's?

    Tried that, didn't work.

    Solved it by booting into Windows and running chkdsk /F , which fixed the damaged files and I could then empty my Trash in Leopard.
