    This file at the top of the list im my hard drive will not go away. I delete it, and the next time I open the drive it is back again. Any ideas as to what it is and how to get rid of it?

    Open up terminal and type:

    Code:
    sudo rm -rf /02*

    Enter your password when it asks, and its gone :)

    PS: Im assuming you dont have another file in the same directory that starts with "02" because I got lazy and didn't want to type the rest :p
