Can't empty trash
Posted by: goosegunner

OSX 10.3.9

For some reason I can't empty the trash. No warnings or popups. Just doesn't do anything when I choose in the dock or Menu/finder/empty trash

restarted and repaired permissions, still no go

Anyone ever have this problem?

I moved the files to a shared folder, went to another user and deleted from that trash.

It still won't let me delete anything from my primary user.

I don't have cocktail or onyx which would be better?

Onyx is free. Try that first.

Cocktail has a 30 day demo.

Have you tried holding down the option key while selecting "Empty trash"?
