    It's kinda slow, but have you tried 'Secure Empty Trash' under the Finder menu item, right beneath the normal 'Empty Trash' menu?

    hi everyone, I had the same problem and I kinda found the answer here http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=7963298
    now my problem, is that i tried maybe too many things, and now when i move something tho the trash, the item is not only deleted but it doesn't appear in the bin anymore! so if anyone can help me undo what i did (which i can't tell) i would appreciate it!
