I searched the forums and couldn't find any help on this so if you have an answer, it would be appreciated. I empty the trash every few days so there is nothing big in there. Here is my problem. When I empty the trash the icon still shows that there is trash in there. Opening the trash shows that it is empty. I fixed permissions and rebooted but it never helped. This has been going on for about a week so now I just sit here I have an early 2008 MacPro with 10 gigs of ram and 4 HDD in it if that helps any.
