    Angry Cannot Remove Directory - Driving Me Nuts
    See below:

    xxx-imac:mymovie admin$ ls -a ./iMovie\ Cache/
    . ..


    xxx-imac:mymovie admin$ sudo rmdir ./iMovie\ Cache/
    Password:
    rmdir: ./iMovie Cache/: Directory not empty

    xxx-imac:mymovie admin$ sudo rm -rf ./iMovie\ Cache
    rm: ./iMovie Cache: Directory not empty

    xxx-imac:mymovie admin$ sudo rm -Rf ./iMovie\ Cache
    rm: ./iMovie Cache: Directory not empty

    xxx-imac:mymovie admin$ sudo rm -f ./iMovie\ Cache
    rm: ./iMovie Cache: is a directory

    xxx-imac:mymovie admin$ sudo rm -R ./iMovie\ Cache
    rm: ./iMovie Cache: Directory not empty

    xxx-imac:mymovie admin$ sudo rm -d ./iMovie\ Cache
    rm: ./iMovie Cache: Directory not empty

    xxx-imac:mymovie admin$ sudo rm -df ./iMovie\ Cache
    rm: ./iMovie Cache: Directory not empty

    xxx-imac:mymovie admin$ sudo rm -dRf ./iMovie\ Cache
    rm: ./iMovie Cache: Directory not empty


    iMovie no longer uses this directory to store events. iMovie is not running. This directory is on an external drive (formatted by OS X). I am Administrator of the machine.

    Would greatly appreciate any ideas.
