^^That just doesnt make any sense what so ever ??
Also your Mac Specs, what OS you are running and any other information you can add to help us help you.

Cheers

Ok I am running the latest v of OS Snow leopard ' my problem is my hd is full.
I tried deleting items from my finder but still my hd remains at capacity .
I tried deleting items from trash, but it only gives the option to secure trash (plus there are 60,000 items in trash???) I pulled my iphoto liberary onto my ex hd and deleted iphoto from finder, but still my hd remains full????

That any better??

repair permissions in disk utility, restart your computer, then try and Empty Trash.

I have a similar problem with my Mac Mini 10.4.11: can't empty Trash and hard drive is nearly full. I tried to repair permissions but got this error: "Error: No valid packages". What does this mean and how do I correct this?
