Intel Mac :: Cannot Delete Any Of Messages To The Trash Folder

Feb 28, 2012

When I try to delete my email messages a pop down box shows up on the screen telling me that  "The message (whatever one it may be) could not be moved to the mailbox 'Deleted does not allow messages to be moved to it. 

Is it possible for me to have deleted the original trash box from the left hand column  of the mail page?And that is why these email message cannot be delelted?

I have been given all kinds of sites to go to in hopes of correcting this problem but  none of them has been the one that works to correct  it for me  I have over 45,000 messages that I need to get rid of and I just can't figure out how to get them to move to the trash file or folder  and it doesn't work.

Intel Mac :: Unable To Delete Messages In All Mail Folder

May 29, 2012

I have a folder under my Gmail account marked "All Mail" which currently has over 10,000 messages that I would like to delete.  I am using the Apple email program.  I am able to delete them only to have them return when I reboot my computer.  I am concerned that these ever growing messsages will slow down my computer.  I have worked with my internet provider, Apple tech, and gmail and no one seems to have an answer.  They do not show up with I access my gmail account through the web.

Intel Mac :: When Delete A Folder Requires A Password And It Doesn't Go In The Trash

May 14, 2012

I made a clean install of lion as i had a little bit of a problems after few years i was uning my iMac.. All of the issues were gone but know i got a new problem with the trash ..  

Every time i delete something (i.e: a folder that i dont need any more) i requires a password.. Then instead of that folder to appear in the Trash (as it should be), it is automatically gone and do not appear in the trash! what is this but i am suspicious that is the password protection thing that is responsible for that!

OS X :: Cannot Delete Folder From Trash

Mar 9, 2009

I have tried everything and I cannot delete this folder from my trash. It's an empty folder because everything inside it is already deleted. I get this message when I try to empty trash.

"The operation cannot be completed because the item "xxx" is in use."

I have tried going into Terminal and typing "sudo rm -rf" etc etc. Get the message "directory not empty".

Tried secure empty trash.

Tried using Cocktail.

Tried using Permanent Eraser.

Tried holding down "option" and emptying.

Tried logging out, logging in then emptying. Tried restarting and emptying.

Nothing seems to work. I've looked through every thread on every forum I could find on google. I can move the folder back to my desktop. I can rename it. It's not locked or anything. Also, I tried emptying it in safe mode, but I can't seem to start up on safe mode!!! I turn off the computer, turn it on, hold down shift after I hear the startup noise, release shift when the grey apple logo comes up, and then it just shuts down on me. I can't boot up on safe mode!! It's so weird!

I'm gonna try repairing disk permissions, but before I do.

I'm on a PowerBook G4. Running Version 10.4.11. Everything is up to date.

OS X :: Can't Delete Windows XP Folder From Trash

Nov 1, 2009

So, while cleaning up my macbook pro from old files, I mistakenly get into the NO NAME partition that appears in the OS X partition, but which holds some kind of Windows XP directories. I don't know how I managed to do so, but I somehow deleted a folder under NO NAME/Documents and Settings/[user name] and all the files in that directory.

Not much harm was done, since it seems as though the folder was merely duplicated into the trash and still remains in its original directory in NO NAME. The problem is that every time I try to delete it from the trash it says I don't have permissions. It's only folders and they're all unlocked and I am logged on as admin. I've tried dragging the folder out of the trash but it merely duplicates it (although I have no issues deleting the duplicate). So I have folders that have no use being in or outside the trash, which are proving to be very difficult to delete. I tried verifying my disk fwith Disk Utility, but it resulted ok.

OS X Yosemite :: How To Speed Up Secure Delete Of Trash Folder

Dec 4, 2014

I have a MacBook Air with 256 GB of SSD and am running very close to the limit of available memory. To recover additional memory I issued an empty trash command while holding down the options key. The process has been underway for a few hours now. 

There are over 1,238,000 items to be deleted. Items are being deleted at the rate of about one every five seconds. At that rate it is going to take forever for the process to finish.  

Is there any way to speed up the process? Or an alternative the empty trash command?

Intel Mac :: How To Mass Delete In Mail Trash

Jun 2, 2012

I'm in Mail and my trash has about 80 deleted messages.  I cannot figure out how to do a mass delete.  Please don't tell me this has to be done one delete at a time.  I've tried a few key strokes and mouse/key combinations, but obviously not the right ones. Now, this is not in MAILBOXES, where a right click and Erase Deleted Items does the job. This is under my 'GMAIL' box, which is linked to MAIL. I can right click--erase deleted items there until I am blue in the face to no avail.

Intel Mac :: GoFlex Desk System Cannot Delete Files Or Move To Trash

Apr 30, 2012

I purchased a GoFlex Desk for Mac with the FW800 adapter. No issues with stability or performance.The only thing that is weird is related to deletion of files:

1) When I set a program to auto-clean files (for example, deleting source rar files after unpacking) it doesn't work

2) Whenever I try to delete a file, I get a warning that "This cannot be undone", and it's doing a permanent delete rather than moving it to trash.I've verified that I'm not using any Seagate drivers, and the drive shows up as the "Orange" generic external drive.

Intel Mac :: Unable To Delete A Folder On OS X 10.6.8?

Mar 21, 2012

I have a folder on my startup drive that will not delete. I can issue the command "rm -rf dir_7171197" as root, and the prompt comes back with no errors, but the folder is still there.  My question is, what are the reasons a file is not able to be deleted?  I can change the name of the folder  but I can't move the folder into the parent, and I can't put it in a child folder.  If I attempt to trash the parent, it just sits there in the trash can and never deletes.  There are no additional attributes assigned to either the folder itself or the parent.

IMac :: Can't Delete Trash / Saying Don't Have Permission To Delete

Mar 6, 2009

I dual boot my iMac using Boot Camp and I'm having problems deleting a bunch of files in my Trash. A short history. I purchased a OWC external hard drive case and I've been going through my old hard drives which originally were used in my Windows XP computer. The drives were contaminated with Windows viruses and so I installed the drives one by one in the OWC case and proceeded to delete files and programs which I didn't need in each drive while in OS X and keeping the files I wanted to save in each respective drive. Now what I'm faced with is a Trash bin filled with Windows XP software (including Windows XP itself) which I cannot delete because OS X says I don't have permission to delete those files.
