    I have a USB keychain that I deleted a bunch of files from and now the files are in the trash. But I can't empty the trash because a bunch of the files are locked or something. There's a lot of them and lot of folders and subfolders. Is there anyway to unlock all the files without having to get info on every single one of them individually? I want to free up the space on my USB drive. Thanks.

    Hold down the option key and select Empty Trash (or Shift-Option-Command-Delete) and that should do it.
