When I try to empty my trash or secure empty my trash it says "The Item".Trash" is in use right now and cannot be opened. Try again when the current task (such as moving or copying an item or emptying the trash) is complete."
This doesn't make any sense due to the fact that I am not doing any of that. The only thing I can think of is that I just deleted a lot of stuff. And while we are on the subject how do you clear out all unneeded history/caches to clear up space and completely rid of the deleted items. Thankyou.
