    I was backing up my music and pictures on my external hard drive and erased the old copy. When I tried to empty my trash after that I could not remove the files because I did not have sufficient privileges. Using the rm -rf code I was able to remove everything except my itunes library. Anyone have any suggestions how to get my itunes library out of my trash? It only shows up when the external drive is plugged in. Thanks.

    Did you try Option key + Empty Trash while the external drive is mounted?
