    Hello,

    I use Virtual Desktop to RIP DVD's that I've recorded from TV, using DVD shrink on XP. I'd moved some files to the XP trash within Virtual Desktop, however the trash now shows in my OSX Trash, but when I try and empty it it never goes. As soon as I stop my XP session the OSX trash shows as empty.

    Any ideas ?

    Thanks

    Mark

    Does the trash appear in the virtual machine too? Can't you emptry it from there?

    It's empty on the virtual machine. The trash items only show in OSX whilst the VM is running. As soon as I stop it, the trash clears. Bizzare !
