I tried to remove a user group from my desktop following the procedures given. I could remove all but one user.

This is the one I want to remove. How can I do this? I have 4 user groups. Why?, when ever I had trouble and called AppleCare they had me install a new user group, which I never removed.

OS X :: How To Delete Individual File / Folder Permanently

Apr 18, 2009

I ripped a few movies from my personal DVD collection onto my MBP to watch on the road during a recent business trip. When I got home, I went to delete them by putting them in the trash. It worked, or so I thought. The folders containing the movie disappeared from my desktop, but the 6 or 7 gigs of space that they took up were still on my HD (I have the status readout below my HD icon on my desktop and it was unchanged after I trashed the movie). After some research I learned that trashing the file doesn't actually take it off the HD, that I'd have to empty my trash bin to get rid of it permanently. But like many of you, I don't want to completely empty my trash. Is there a way to permanently get rid of individual files/folders? I saw a few ideas. I saw a program called permanent eraser. I also saw where someone suggested using Terminal and some rf commands.

OS X Yosemite :: How To Delete Individual Time Machine Backups Using Finder

Dec 7, 2014

I recent fount necessary to do a complete install and restore.  As I was having trouble with system performance, I chose to restore Applications from Time Machine and set the system parameters manually.  In the process, I wound up with some very large (50 Gbytes) on my Desktop.  I neglected to turn off time Machine backup while doing the restoration and wound up with several big(!) files in the back ups taken during the restoration.  There is nothing useful on the backups taken during the restoration and they have really filled  up my backup disk.  Looking at the structure of the backup disk, it seems you could just delete the backups after I started to restore things.  Are there other considerations?  Are there hidden tables laying around that might become unsynchronized?

MacBook Pro :: Mail 5.3 Won't Delete Emails

Jun 4, 2014

I have been using Mail for years with no problem but all of the sudden it will no longer delete emails. I have 3 email accounts gmail, comcast, icloud 

When I delete an email it disapears - BUT - then it magically reappears in Mail. 

When I delete emails they also do not go into the trash folders. 

I am having to log on individually to all three email accounts and delete messages from their interface. Total waste of my time. 

I have looked at the settings in preferences - behaviors and I have checked "Move deleted messages to the trash mailbox" I did not check "Store deleted messages" I selected permanently erase deleted messages when "one week old".

Software :: Mail Won't Let Me Delete Emails?

Feb 27, 2009

I have a problem deleting several emails from the Trash Folder in Mail. All of them are emails.
Around the time this happened I had a problem with my Apple Base Station so maybe it has to do with my losing the internet a short time but there are 7 emails greyed out that I simply cannot delete. I press delete and nothing happens. Any idea how I can get rid of these? Any other emails I get I can simply delete.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can't Delete Emails In Mail App

Jun 20, 2012

I have emptied the Trash and set preferences for all my email accounts so that emails are permanently erased on quitting Mail.I also selected Rebuild from the Mailbox pull-down menu.I bought an email archiving program called MailSteward. When I run it, it pulls in many thousands of emails that I have already deleted from Mail. This is no good at all!The programmer of MailSteward

(By the way, MailSteward does not go online to find emails: it just looks on my computer. Also, these supposedly deleted emails were sent to my account and my gmail account, so it's not .Mac or gmail that's the problem.)
