    I've been organizing some files on my external hard drive and after I had all the files where I wanted, I had to delete all the individual folders that they were in.

    They are all aliases which is really weird and I have no idea what happened

    When I try to empty trash nothing happens, no pop up or anything tell me what's wrong.

    When I tried to SECURE empty trash I get this

    I'll state the obvious, did you restart the machine then try to delete?

    Yeah I tried it. The weird thing is that i couldn't find the video files on the external anywhere but since im a neat freak it's going to bother me that there might be 5gigs of random videos somewhere haha
