    Default Im having trouble with secure emptying my trash or emptying it period for that matter
    Im having trouble with secure emptying my trash or emptying it period for that matter. I have some old backups I want to get rid of to free up space on my external hard drive. Whenever I try to secure empty the trash it comes up with an error message that says, "The operation canít be completed because an unexpected error occurred (error code -8003)." Ideas anyone?

    You can try firing up the terminal and typing:

    Code:
    sudo rm -rf /.trashes/*
    Don't screw up that command though, or you might end up wiping your hdd!
