    I am having real difficulty deleting files on my macbook pro. Although there definitely aren't over 8000 files in my trash everytime I try to delete it seems to think there is... Any idea of how to rectify this?

    If GGJstudios links didn't help:

    Can you post a screenshot of the error message or at least quote it here?

    How many files are in the Trash, have you looked into it recently?

    With what methods do you try to empty the Trash?

    And what exact Mac OS X version do you have?
