I tried posting this question earlier today. It looked like it
worked but never appeared in the forum.

I get this error message when I try to empty the trash bin:
"The operation canít be completed because you donít have
permission to access some of the items."

I tried the sudo command found in a similar post, no go.
Is Trash It legitimate? It's hard to know what to trust. I
also tried holding down the control key, that didn't work.

Thanks in advance.

The files in the trash .... where did they come from ?
If they came from an external device, then you need to connect that external device before emptying the trash.

A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?

McBie-

Thanks for the reply. It's a folder, came from my desktop.
No files show up when I open the folder.
Any knowledge of Trash It software? It's on the Mac Update
site and cnet as well.

This is strange. Just had another look in the trash bin, it's gone!
