    Can't seem to find any solution for this......The error is: The operation can’t be completed because an unexpected error occurred (error code -8003).

    I recently restored my iMac to a factory install and dumped a bunch of apps onto my 1TB Seagate ext. hard drive I use as a back up. It was getting full and TimeMachine suggested I delete the older backups to make room for newer. I dumped a bunch of apps and other files that were on the drive and now I can't empty the trash.

    Tried secure emtpy trash, tried some of the unix code but now can't find what code it was...
