when i need to empty trash it dosen't work i don't know why please help
Press ctrl key and empty the trash. It will force delete.
Thanks friend but it doesn't work also????
What exactly isn't getting deleted? Are you getting any error messages?
It is not exactly error message it said you can't undo this action?????
Just press OK. It's just a warning. You always have TimeMachine. So when the dialog "you can't undo this action" pops up, just press OK or the return key.
The full message said ( are you sure you want to remove tehe items in trash permanently? then small writing under this line said you can't undo this action)
is there a little lockpad icon next to the files that won't delete? If there is, you need to go to "get info" (right click on the file) and then double click the lock pad on the left hand side..
also, make sure the file you are trying to delete is not in use. usually it shows a message saying this but not always.
oh mike...come on man emptying the trash can be hard hahaha
Oh my God the same problem i can't empty trash i did every thing but still doesn't work and there isn't any lockpad
I can't empty my trash either, or force empty it. All I get is the 'Trash' progress bar saying it's emptying the trash, but nothing happens - I've left it there for hours, no change.
Try doubling the RAM.
I know people want make fun of this one, but it appears to be a problem. I actually ran into it this morning and happened to see this post.
The solution is to remove the trash through terminal, but something isn't right:
that was what i did to myself when i read the thread.
What's wrong with clicking the link I posted?
I saw the text about doubling the RAM (which isn't the problem) so I didn't bother to follow your link. I just figured you were making fun of the OP too and I was trying to help him.
