    This is really weird: Lately, whenever I delete files or anything else in Finder it says "This item will be deleted immediately. You can not undo this action." I checked and my trash is empty, I have just under 130 GB free on my Hard Drive, and the files are being deleted from my startup disk. (The problem persists when trying to delete from either of my two External Hard Drives as well)

    Does anyone have any ideas how I can get items to go to my Trash instead of being immediately deleted permanently? The button still says "Move to Trash"...

    If you are getting a permission denied trying to create a folder in your own home folder, you probably need to repair permissions. Use the disk utility to do this.

    If you still have the issue, use the terminal to type the commands:

    id
    ls -lad

    Then post the output here.
