    Hi. I did the amateur move and deleted backups via finder, and now I cannot empty the trash. I have been looking online for a while and tried terminal, batchmod, option and delete, etc, but to no avail. If anyone is able to help me that would be great.

    Do you use an external drive for your Time Machine backups? If so, try plugging it in and then deleting them.
