    Well, I'm out of ideas

    Maybe

    sudo rm -rf /Volumes/"WINDOWS HD"/.Trashes/502/

    ?

    That, working by design, will delete the /Volumes/"WINDOWS HD"/.Trashes/502/ recursively.

    If I remember correctly in the other thread it showed a finder window showing it as a 0 byte file

    rename?
    I wonder, Since we have seen the file with finder - can he maybe rename the file there and then delete it? Just brainstorming.

    When I try to rename the file with Finder, it says

    "The operation could not be completed.

    An unexpected error occurred (error code -43)."

    When I try to rename in Terminal, this is what I get:

    Why do I get two different file names that display in Terminal for this thing, anyway?

    Well, when I copy and paste them into Word and blow it up, this is what I get. Ignore the "./file" at the end of the one. I copied that from the line where I was trying to rename the file.

    I fixed it! I decided to try attacking it from the Windows side again. When I started up Windows, it asked to perform a disk check. It discovered the folder 502, said it was unrecoverable, and asked if I wanted Windows to convert the folder to a file. It ignored the rogue file inside it a converted the whole thing into a little file. I dragged the file into the recycle bin and told it to empty. Alas, problem solved.

    A very big thanks to everyone who tried to help me. You guys rock!

    I had another option, but it would have taken a lot more effort your part. Glad you found a solution.

    Cool
    Move into the directory in question. Do the following command:

    ls -BC1 > del

    A file called del is created with all of the file in the directory listed in side. Then you edit the file del and add a rm in front of each list. Also place a double quote around each file name. Once that is done, do a

    sh del

    That should execute the little shell script you created.

    In the cases that I had the problem you had on other flavors of Unix, that help me resolve the problem.

    yea, I thought about passing it through xargs too... but didn't think that would work since it'd still have to execute rm against a long file name
