In 25 years of Mac use, this is a new one to me. I have a folder of 1350 jpegs that is a duplicate of another (all photos from camera cards for 2011) that I have placed in the trash and emptied four (the latest) times. Each time, the folder later reappears in the finder. The photos are in there and will open. I have used "Empty Trash" and "Secure Empty Trash" with the same result. Do I have Poltergeist or what? Thanks.
