    Hi. I had this Macbook a long time ago but I'm still not familiar with terminal and so.

    Anyway, recently, there's a folder on my desktop that was meant to be deleted during my cleaning-up day. But it won't move, it won't be deleted.
    When I opened Get Info, it's zero byte. There's a file in it (not important, though). But when I opened Get Info on the file, the size was about 300kB. But still, it wouldn't open.
    It said: The application can't be found.
    It can't be compressed, or anything. Everything else works fine. It just annoys me, though, seeing one little freaking blue folder.

    Help, please?
    Thanks a lot!:)

    Hi. Thanks for replying. Though I really don't understand terminals.
    Anyway, the problem has solved itself.
    A few days ago, the folder suddenly threw up all files it has on my desktop.
    And when I tried to delete them, it worked like usual.
    Thank you, though!
