    Exclamation Unlocking an item in the trash ??
    Im trying to delete a game and when I put it in the trash and "emptied trash" a box with an exclamation point in a yellow triangle popped up and said:

    "the operation cannot be completed because the item 'wheel.map' is locked"

    is there anyway to unlock this item so it can be deleted? :confused:

    did you try rebooting and emptying trash right after reboot?

    You may be able to just hold the option key while selecting the "Empty Trash" menu item.

    Otherwise, do a get info on the file and deselect the "locked" option.
