MacBook Pro :: Delete Individual Items From Trash Without Emptying Entire Trash?

Jun 26, 2014

How do you delete individual items from Trash without emptying entire Trash? If I highlight one item in Trash, the only option is the Empty button. I'm afraid it will empty the whole thing. I don't want to do that.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Trash Not Deleting - How To Delete It

May 21, 2012

I have a folder over 1 GB (in my HDD), with Windows Executable files; along with .dmg's, a video, and a few text files.For some reason, the files just do not want to erase themselves. I've tried a Secure Empty of the trash can; I've tried entering a sudo comain in Terminal, but it won't let me enter my password; I've tried dragging into Shredder, on MacKeeper, but it takes forever to in there, so I end up giving up.

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.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Command & Delete Not Sending To Trash But Context Menu Works

Jul 5, 2012

my DELETE functionality within finder is not working consistently anymore.  I am only seeing this issue on my new MAC BOOK AIR (used for work and received just last week), and not on my macmini (that is also running Lion and I've had for a year). 

Basically, I am having problems deleting files using CMD + DELETE.  I hit this command and get the typically apple "ping" sound for a something that isn't working, however I can right click and hit MOVE TO TRASH and it goes immediately, which means it's definitely not a file permission/in-use/lockout issue. 

I feel like I did something stupid to cause this, but it only doesn't work occasionally.  I have noticed it moreso right after I open or have used a file, but while CMD+DEL doesn't work, the MOVE TO TRASH does, so i'm lost. 

extremely frustrated and I've been through my System Pref settings alot in case I turned something off.

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.

MacBook Pro :: Cannot Secure Delete Trash

Jun 26, 2014

I have a late 2012 Macbook Pro version 10.9.3.

Attached to this are two external hard drives: Both are SeaGate, USB 3.0, 3TB, and are formatted to the ExFAT system.

I use these mainly for purposes associated with my job as an wedding video editor.

About a month ago, I received a few files from a client that they wanted to attach to their video and upon editing them I tried to delete the originals but was unable to as I got this message: "The operation can’t be completed because you don’t have permission to access some of the items". However, all other trash that I put in there is deleted when I secure delete so I'm sure it's not a problem with the system but rather with those files.

I have researched the problem online and have found some suggested solutions:

1. That I need to change the permission on the file in order to delete it. When I checked the file information it reported that I was able to "Read and Write" as with every other file.

2. I attempted the following suggestion that I found on another forum: Advanced tip about deleting locked filesIf there are several locked files in the Trash, you can unlock them all at the same time at the command line. Follow these steps:Open Terminal. It's located in /Applications/Utilities.Type: chflags -R nouchg Note: Type one space (not pictured) after nouchg in the line above, so that it ends in "nouchg ". Do not press Return yet.Double-click the Trash icon in the Dock to reveal the contents of the Trash. If necessary, arrange the Finder window so that a portion of the Terminal window is still visible.Press the Command-A key combination to select all files in the Trash.Drag the files from the Trash to the Terminal window. Note: This automatically enters the pathname for each file. This eliminates the need to individually empty multiple Trash directories, particularly when multiple disks or volumes are present.Press Return. No special text message will be shown indicating that the command was successful.Empty the Trash.

This did not work either as when I attempted to delete the same message appeared.  

So my question is this, how do I permanently delete these files? Do I need to buy third party software to do this?

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 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 :: 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.
