    Do you guys know of a command which will allow me to delete this redundant folder in the Trash?

    I was following the command given here. The file is an old "Backups.backupdb" Time Machine backup and I cannot remove it from the Trash without it just copying itself and renaming it doesn't help. I have Read & Write access on all drives. Any ideas? Thanks

    EDIT: T r a s h I t ! "Really Stuck" Mode did the job.
