    Hi,

    I've used terminal to make all my hidden files visible to delete one of those annoying .Trashes folder, but when I attempt to do so by using rm -r (filename), terminal says 'No such file or directory."

    But i know it does exist because I have finder open in the other window, can see the folder, open the folder and view the contents.

    It's also a pretty urgent problem so please please please, HELP! D:

    Run the command below in Terminal. You will be asked for your password.

    Code:
    sudo rm -rf ~/.Trash
