    Hi everyone,
    There are 3 folders in my Trash Can that I can't delete. I tried through the
    terminal by using this code "sudo rm -rf /Users/username/.Trash" and few other ways but no success.
    These are the names of the files/folders: The first one( m,7l/»ˆ•.„D).The second one( pûm„s`†ç.…¹) and the third one ( Ü*þü.).
    When I go to Get-Info the location is shown as this (/Volumes/BOOTCAMP/.Trashes/). I deleted all the items from the windows' trash can in BootCamp but I still have these 3 on my mac's trash. Any help?

    Have you tried just restarting
    I had a similar problem yesterday and a simple restart made the files go away

    Secure Empty the trash. Always worked for me. Your Unix knowledge has betrayed you in finding a more elegant solution.
