OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Can't Drag Applications To The Trash?

May 6, 2012

I downloaded a beta test recently, now it's finished I have the folder sitting in my Applications folder, but it won't let me drag it out into the trash. I've logged in as an Administrator, changed my regular ID to have Admin status, none of it works. I've got the CCleaner app from the App Store, same issue. It tells me I need to be an Admin to uninstall files, but even when I log in as the Admin, it gives me the same message.

Applications :: Won't Move Photos To Trash In Iphoto / Using Snow Leopard

May 12, 2010

I've been trying to clean up a bunch of duplicates but when I highlight a photo and then take the option "move to trash" it simply moves the highlight to the next photo but the system acts as though I have moved the first photo to trash as the option to move to trash is now unavailable. I am running snow leopard but I am sure I have performed this task before in this version of the OS. Dragging a photo to trash simply doesn't work.

Applications :: Can No Longer Drag Files From OS X Itunes Library Directly To Trash

Feb 13, 2010

up until a few days ago...maybe after 9.0.3 update...on my macbook pro under snow leopard, im certain i could drag files from itunes library or a playlist into the trash.

if i drug the file from the library to the trash, you would here the trash can "eating sound" and it would be gone from the library (one step). if it was from a playlist, it would delete that file from the playlist but not from the library as expected. now, i cant do either. now i have to right click and delete the file/s and then click move to trash.

OS X :: Snow Leopard Drag And Drop Broken (85 Object Limit)?

Jul 12, 2010

Normally consider myself quite able to troubleshoot my own problems, but I can't for the life of me figure out what to do here, and can't seem to find many others who have the same problem. The drag-and-drop function in Snow Leopard appears to be either broken or deliberately crippled. My work sees me having to move a lot of files from folder to folder, and I've discovered that, as of fairly recently, I can no longer drag-and-drop more than 85 objects from one folder to another. Up to 85, everything works just fine -- but if I select 86, upon dragging I get an "X-ed out" icon, like the "no smoking" or "no parking" circle with a line through it.

I'm not quite sure what to do about this, but would be very curious and appreciative if anyone else has the same issue, or has figured out how to solve it! This, combined with the lack of a "cut" feature in OS X has begun to really impede my workflow.

OS X :: Unable To Put Back Trash Files On Snow Leopard / Files Sent To Trash

Dec 5, 2009

I was trying to delete one file , so i dragged to trash, then all of a sudden I realize my entire Drobo (3TB Huge) was highlighted and deleting to my trash! So now I have a trash folder full all my Drobo's content and I can't figure out how to get it all back to "put back"! I'm afraid that I am going to inadvertently empty trash and lose my entire Drobo's contents! I need to figure out how to undo or put back ... come on Apple. Why'd you make this so difficult?

Intel Mac :: Can't Just Drag To The Trash

May 23, 2012

Since reinstalling my Lion, the Trash has been strange. I can't just drag stuff there without getting a dialogue box telling me it will be deleted immediately. That requires me to click my agreement.  Same thing happens if I right-click my mouse and choose the Trash option.  So my Trash basket stays empty, and I go through a two-step process with every file or program I want to be rid of.

OS X :: Can't Drag Items From Stacks To Trash

Mar 7, 2009

For the last couple of days, I haven't been able to drag any files over from my Stacks to the Trash; nothing happens. I'm forced to open the folder and drag it over from there or Apple+Delete it. I *might* have accidentally deleted a file (I don't remember which) causing this to suddenly happen and haven't been able to figure out how to fix it. It's more of an annoyance than anything else.

OS X :: Can't Move Multiple Items To Trash In Snow Leopard?

Sep 7, 2009

Has anyone else got this issue? You have a bunch of files you want to move to trash. You highlight them all, then right click, but "Move to trash" is missing from the menu.

If I highlight just one, the "move to trash" option is there. But disappears when multiple items are selected.

Anyone else had this problem? Is there a fix I can do to get "move to trash" for multiple selected items back?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Find A Document After Emptying The Trash?

Feb 6, 2012

Not too long ago I looked through the list of things I had put in the Trash.  Some how I over looked a document I should have removed from the Trash and Empetyed Trash.  There is some way to locate what has been empteyed from the Trash and get it onto the Desktop.  How do I do that? 

I have not Secured Empty Trash... so my document should still be able to be found and removed from the Emptey Trash.

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.
