OS X :: Certain File In My Trash Bin That Won't Delete?

Oct 27, 2009

There is a certain file in my trash bin that won't delete, I don't believe it is locked or anything, it just says, "The operation can�t be completed because the item �sixtyforce� is in use."

"sixtyforce" was this emulator that I downloaded, but it was the older version of it, so I wanted to delete it, but that message keeps coming up.

OS X :: File With Odd Characters In Its Name Won't Delete From Trash

Nov 6, 2008

I was in the process of deleting Bioshock from a Windows fat32 drive while in OS X on my January 2008 Mac pro when it was unable to do so due permissions on some of the files and folder, so I just placed the whole bioshock folder back on the fat32 formatted drive, however ever since there has been a file in Trash labeled ␀␀␀␀␀.�� that wont be emptied, I do not receive a error message when I try to empty it, it just remains in there.

I am unable to use the get info right click option as when I do so the ␀␀␀␀␀.�� file vanishes for a few minutes and then just reappears in the Trash.

I am unable to move the file any where as when I try to do so it is as if I have not clicked on anything and the os does not acknowledge that anything has occurred.

'the item "....." cab;t be moved to the Trash because it can't be delete.' The file is just a Safari download icon you often get when downloading a file, and I can't move it or do anything to it, I can't access its info or move it around the desktop.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Finder Keeps Asking To Input Password Whenever Delete File To Trash

Jun 23, 2012

Suddenly Finder keeps asking me to input my password whenever I delete a file to the trash. Emptying the trash is fine, though.I thought maybe I had clicked an option in Onyx that caused this, but having looked several times, I can't see anything in Onyx that would cause this.I've tried repairing disk permissions using Disk Utility, with no effect.

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Delete DS_Store File / File Keeps Popping Up On My Desktop

Nov 29, 2007

I am relatively new to the Mac. I have a Macbook Pro 2.2GHz. Today, a file keeps popping up on my desktop. It is named .DS_Store. The icon looks like a text document. I won't open it cuz I'm afraid of what it is, lol (Windows still clogging my brain). Anyway, I can drag it to the trash and delete the trash, but after a bit, it reappears.

Any idea how to get rid of it?

OS X :: Sharing File Via Drop Box - Cannot Be Opened

Jan 5, 2009

Have a Blackbook and a Unibody Pro on the same network. With the unibody, I can see the place files in the Blackbook's Drop Box, but when I go to open the newly-placed file in the Blackbook's Drop Box, I get a error message saying the file "is used by Mac OS X and cannot be opened". If I try to drag the file from the Blackbook's Drop Box to the desktop, I get the error "Some of the items you are moving are in use by another application. Move the items can cause problems with the application using them..."

What am I doing wrong?
- File sharing enabled on both computers

Final Cut Pro X :: Document Could Not Be Opened - Read Only File System

Dec 9, 2014

I recently moved all my fcpx projects/events to a new Harddrive - I thought I did this correctly by copying/duplicating all projects/events from within FCPX. 

When I last used FCPX all the projects/events were there - no issues.  Also, when I look at package contents - everything is still there in terms of events and file sizes.    

All the library files are on an external hard drive, on an encrypted disk image.  Now a week later I have tried to open FCPX and I get the following error 

"The document “MND_Z_FCPX” could not be opened. Read-only file system" and nothing will open. 

Have checked permissions - these all seem in order.  OSX is10.9.5
