MacBook Pro :: Delete Secure Files From Trash?

Feb 17, 2012

I want to delete backup files that are more than a year old from my time machine.  I moved them to trash and although it then asks if I want to remove secure items and I check yes, it then stops.  As a result I can't securely delete any new files either since each time the same thing happens if I add a new file, none of it deletes.

MacBook Pro :: Delete Files That Say You Can't Erase Them?

May 14, 2012

I'm trying to delete several files (one, an application; the other, an Excel file) but whenever I move them to the trash, I get an error message. The Application (Skype) error says I have to unlock the file, but after I unlock it (using File->Get Info) and I type in the administrator password, it gets me back to the beginning and I have to do the whole thing over and over again.

When I try to delete Excel file, i get a dialogue box that says "The operation can't be completed because the item NY alumni list.xls is in use." But the file is only being used by me; even after I make a small change and resave it and then try to delete it, i get the same error message repeatedly.

MacBook Pro :: Delete Files From External Drives And SD Cards?

Jun 3, 2012

I'm a relatively new Mac user (Macbook Pro 15). Can anyone tell me hwo to delete files from an external drive WITHOUT having to empty the entire trash bin.I can easily send the files to trash, however this does not free up disk space until I empty the trash. Personally I don't like to empty all the time as it ceases to become an effective safety net.
