    There's a bunch of files i can't delete from the trash bin. I tried trashit, that made all files 1kb. Tried the terminal and it doesn't work either.

    Says it can't read or write the files, i repared the permissions, nothing.
    What can i do?

    Try this: put the file in a convenient location and then
    Code:
    cd ~/.Trash && sudo rm -rf <path>
    Changing `<path>' to the actual path, like ~/Desktop/<file> if it's on desktop.
