Can't empty trash...
Posted by: DP
Date: August 30, 2006 08:52AM
iMac Intel 2Ghz 10.4.7
When I try to empty my trash I get three repeating messages saying "Can't empty trash because Localized.rsrc is in use". When I open Trash, there's nothing in it. I went to Apple support but found nothing even after repeated searches and have posted on Apple's forum with no luck. Can this august body help?

Did you try holding down option key while emptying?

Have you tried holding the option key while selecting empty trash from the Finder Menu? That may not work since it's thinking there's a file in use. You should be able to empty the trash after a restart though.

Go to the trash can in the Dock, click+hold, on the Trash, from the menu that pops up, select "Empty Trash", that will force empty trash.

Nope--doesn't work on my G5 2.0 Dual-either way--same problem fpr a couple of weeks.
I get the message 3 times in succession


COOL--just found the cure:
Try going to Finder> secure empty trash
Worked for me

Try Batchmod. It was the only thing that worked for me. Good luck!

Onyx will also work the CL voodoo to force the trash to empty.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
