    Empty Trash Issue
    Hi
    I am having a very strange problem, when i go to my Trash folder, I can only use "Secure Empty Trash" and that takes ages to empty the trash folder
    I cant seem to find the option "Empty Trash"

    Can any one help

    regards
    Kevin

    Specs:
    2013 MBA 13" - OS X 10.10.5
    Go into Finder -> preferences -> advanced and uncheck " Empty Trash Securely "

    Secure Empty trash can take a long time depending on the amount of data you are deleting.
