    Hey Folks,,,

    I might not be on the correct spot to post this, but I'm about to go 'postal' on Google Drive.

    I have had the worst time deleting Google Drive from my hard drive. I finally managed to get rid of it, but now I have a "contents" folder with "resources" and "GoogleDrive.icns" in it.

    I've managed to get the folder into my trash, but it will not empty. What can I do?????

    I wanted to delete GoogleDrive because I do not use it any longer and it is always running……

    Any suggestions…

    If you're lazy (or are more comfortable with a UI), you can also use BatChmod: http://www.lagentesoft.com/batchmod/

    It has the same function (force empty trash) built into one of the file menus. It's also great for fixing pesky file permissions and unlocking files. Be careful with that feature though.
