OS X :: Apps Send To Trash - Delete All Associated Files Also?

Nov 25, 2009

I'm pretty new to Mac (4 months)..having finally come from the "dark side". My question is: when you install software (OS X 10.6) does it send files all over the place like Windoze does? And, to uninstall something, is all you do is right-click and "send to trash"? Will that delete any and all files associated with that app?

MacBook Air :: Delete Apps From Interface / Cannot Drag Them To Trash Can

Aug 23, 2014

I've never really felt the need to delete apps from this interface, but there are a bunch showing up I do not recall installing. They are not listed in the Applications folder. I cannot drag them to the trash can, and no 'x' pops up in the corner when I get the icons wiggling. I found some command on some website for deleting things through terminal but I tried it and it did not work (some error about "too many options"). Again I repeat there is no 'x' on the app icons and there is no way to make it appear.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Stop Apps From Accessing Files In Trash

Mar 12, 2012

Is there a way to prevent apps from accessing files that are in the trash?I recently got bit when I moved some files to the trash, checked to make sure that nothing was broken, and then took out the trash. Turned out some applications were still using the files while they were in the trash.Is there a way, either in terminal or finder, to leave the files in the trash but make it so no apps can see them? It would be nice if this was the normal behavior.

OS X :: Can't Delete Files In Trash

Jul 21, 2006

I was cleaning up my jumpdrive and accidently put a locked safegaurd file in the trash so when I went to empty the trash it emptied everything but that. Then I went in and moved a copy of the safegaurd file from the trash to the desktop then to the jumpdrive. Now the file is safely back on my jumpdrive, but I have useless files in my trash that I can't delete. How do I do it??

Anyone know what I can do?

OS X :: Delete Only Certain Files Permanently From Trash Bin?

Feb 19, 2009

I'm a recent mac converter. Hope someone can help me out.

Now in XP I was able to remove certain files from the trash bin. I never actually emptied the entire trash bin, but once in a while would delete the oldest files from the trash bin and keep the new ones.

Is this possible in OS X? I was only able to empty the entire trash bin, but not certain parts of it.

OS X :: Empty Trash Won't Delete Particular Files?

Jan 7, 2010

When I empty my trash they all delete except 2 particular files. They have weird names with symbols in them. I don't know if it matters but when I press get info it says they are in the Windows XP .Trashes folder. I used a hidden file application to look for them and delete them but that didn't work. I can't drag them out the trash can. There is nothing showing in Windows XP in the recycle bin. I tried verifying the disk. Overall, nothing has worked at all and I've searched everywhere for an answer.

OS X :: Can I Set Trash To Completely Delete Certain Old Files Automatically

Jul 26, 2010

I want it to either

Conserve disk space and confine the size of Trash to a certain percentage of the total hard disk space and automatically delete old files to meet that limit; or

Automatically delete files that has been sent to trash for a certain period of time.

Can I do that in Mac OS X?

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.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Delete Files & Bypass The Trash?

May 5, 2012

Is there a way to completely remove files from my system without moving them to the Trash?  I've read about the Trash, but I'm not clear on EXACTLY how it works. Can I empty A file from the trash or when I click on a file & choose "Emtpy the Trash" does it empty ALL of the files in the Trash or just that one file?  Is there a way to just empty ONLY 1 file from the trash or restore ONLY 1 file from the Trash if so how? ALSO, what are the "rules" for MOVING files rather than COPYing them? I thought files that went from one folder to another on the same drive, were moved & ones that went to different drives were copied. It seems like I've run acrorss instances where that's not how things work.

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.

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.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can't Empty Trash And Icon Never Indicates Files Are In Trash

May 1, 2012

Despite having several files in the trash, its icon never changes (always shows an empty trash) and the "Empty Trash" option is dimmed (that is, cannot be used). OnyX ws the only solution but it's temporary. What's the fix I should apply to Mac OS X?Also, why is it that every time I want to move a file to trash I must enter my password? It's annoying to say the least.Please help me as I don't want to go through the royal pains of installing everything again, Windows-style. I think Mac OS X should be better than that.

OS X Mavericks :: How To Send Emails From Google Apps On Mac

Jun 25, 2014

I have a Google Apps email account for college and I added it to Mail on my Mac (Mavericks 10.9.3, Mail 7.3). Emails sent to my Google Apps email come into my Mac fine. However, whenever I try to send something, it gets stuck in the outbox and never goes through. I end up copying the message, deleting the email in the outbox, and logging in on Safari to send the message. I don't want to do this every time I have to send an email with college. Is there any way I can set this up/fix it so I can send emails from my Mac? I have several different email accounts on there (AT&T, normal Gmail, and Google Apps) on my Mac and the other two accounts work perfectly fine.

OS X Mavericks :: Dragging Apps From Application Folder To Trash

Sep 12, 2014

I've been a Mac user for a few years now but I was reluctant to update to Mavericks because whenever I hadn't done a clean install my macbook would become very slow and unstable, so I was using Lion until I bought a new Macbook.

Before, whenever I wanted to delete an app I'd open the Application folder on the Dock and drag it straight to the trash from there. In Mavericks, however, when I try to do that the app just stays there, and I have to open the application folder on Finder to be able to drag it (and it prompts me for my password). Is there a way I could go back to deleting them right from the App folder in the dock (and not having to type my password every time)?
