    Hey boys.

    I have a WD external disk, to keep all my crap. In the past i had a Sony Vaio, before my shift to an iMac. So the Windows files on my WD disk, did I put in the trash. But now I cant delete the Windows files from the trash.

    I have tried to remove them with a "sucure erase" Cocktail and with the Terminal. sudo rm -r ./.Trash/

    Nothing I have tried can clean my trash. :confused:

    Have you tried rm -rf ? (the f flag forces removal regardless of the files' permissions.)
