I need a program that delets stuff without any help from Finder.
Reason:
My ibooks 60 gb hard drive is filled the brim so full that finder can barely run so little that no finder windows can be opened. I actually don't no how I'm even able to use safari right now.

EDIT: To start go to your desktop so finder is active. do a <shift><command><delete> to empty your trash, that might give you enough room to work from.


If you can open a terminal and use the command "rm <file>"

To delete an entire directory "rm -rf <directory>" but use with caution, the files are gone permanently.

So to delete my music directory from my home

"cd ~" to go to home
"ls" just so I know what is there
"rm -rf Music" and my music folder would be gone
