If you are having problems trying to clean up your Trash on Mac even when you are using the "force" you need to know this tip.
I tried a lot of times without success to clean up my Trash using the command line below:
MacBook-Air-de-Caio:~ caiomsouza$ sudo rm -rf ~/.Trash/*
After trying a lot, I discovery that if you press the Option button while you clean up the trash it will work and it will clean up bin files and others.
I found this tip in this website here.
The original text:
Sometimes the Trash on your Mac won't empty - even when you tell it to. Ever since Idragged and dropped a bunch of leftover Windows system files into my Mac's Trash bin, no matter how many times I tried to empty it, there those trashed files stayed, staring at me in defiance.
Luckily, The X Lab site offers a few options for force-emptying the Mac's Trash. Being acommand line gal, I used the old
rm -rf ~/.Trash/*technique in Terminal, but apparently holding down the Option key while emptying does the trick too. Here's to empty trash bins!
