    WTF is up with this error message when emptying the trash or moving some files? Even Secure Empty Trash will not work.

    ***Disregard for now. It appears that checking "Ignore ownership on this volume" might be the fix. This is a MBP with two internal drives. Files can now be transferred to the secondary drive and files can be deleted that resided there.

    And now this message is back as well. Requires a restart and then the files can be moved to the trash.
