    Exclamation Trash bypass
    i did a repair disk permissions and now for some reason when I delete a file on my computer it just deletes it rather then send it to the trash can. it prompts me with a warning saying it will be deleted immediately. How do i fix this setting ?

    It sounds like either the hidden Trash folder is missing or it has the wrong permissions. Read this tip:
    Prevent local files from being deleted immediately - Mac OS X Hints

    The first comment has a Terminal command that should be tried:
    Code:
    mkdir -m 700 .Trash
    BTW... what tool did you use to repair permissions?

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
