Finally! I was able to empty my annoying Trash!
For months since I have my MacBook Pro downgraded to Tiger OS, I have this problem with my Trash. Some files dont get deleted, and everytime I try to “Empty Trash”, it keeps on saying some privileges are blah blah, and some files are not in use.
I have tried deleting while holding down Alt/Options key. I have tried by terminal, I have tried the Secure Empty Trash but all of these things did not work.
My files were from my Windows folder. This is because I have my machine on dual boot with WinXP using BootCamp.
Now for the solution.
I looked into the Trash, and right click on the “annoying” folder.
I got its directory location which is WIN/.Trashes , where WIN is my Windows HD partition.
So i logged on to my WinXP, and went to the folder
I dragged the .Trashes file, to the Recycle Bin (take note we are now on XP)
And then I emptied the Recycle Bin
I logged on to my Tiger OS X again, looked into Trash….. and it is gone! 🙂
