I have foolishly moved a time machine back-up file from my external drive to trash. My problem is now that I cannot delete it properly from trash. Moreover, I my external hard drive is acting up. I canīt eject the drive, I canīt write to it and I canīt delete or repair it from Disc Utility.

The file in the trash has got ...inProgress and I have tried to empty trash with normal empty, secure empty and through Terminal.

Time Machine has been set to off all the time.

Any ideas on how I can solve this?

Thanks in advance!
