A new development--after turning off all of the Growl prefs I could find, Trashburner ran a notification that the trash had been emptied, but in actuality it (the trash) was still there. there were even some video files that weren't part of the time machine backup, and they wouldn't erase either. Please help if anyone can--I'm getting both desperate AND stupid. Well, I might have been stupid already... Don P.S. I assume that should have been just "sudo..." and not...
As an aside, WTF does the error code "8003" actually mean? The whole thing may be easier to solve if I knew what the antecedent condition was/is. Googling "8003" just brings me to these forums, but doesn't actually define the issue. Don
It prompted a password request, but then there was no change to trash. Again, I tied deleting thru time machine and it was a no-go. Now, I suspect, these file (from the backup HD are in limbo--they are showing as not present in the ext. HD, present in the trash--and I can't move them back to the HD from Trash as there is not enough room, and nonoe of the methods currenlty shown will get rid of them either. The closest I got was with TrashBurner and that stopped and gave me...

OK, I did exactly that, and, nothing--no prompts, no asking for authentication, nada. Again, I tried to go thru Time Machine to delete, but it wouldn't work. Also, I am a little new at this, so if I send a command and get no feedback (as with the terminal command you showed me) then I get kinda lost. Which is my usual state. Exactly; you're not supposed to manually delete Time Machine backups. Try this in the Terminal. MAKE SURE IT'S EXACTLY THIS: Code: $sudo...
Hi everyone-- OK, here's the deal. I have a 1 Tb seagate external hard drive that I use for time machine backup as well as to hold large media files. I tried deleting the backup using time machine and it wouldn't do it. I then tried dragging it to the trash (which has worked flawlessly before) and I got the error code 8003. I read through some forums and got Trashit! and TrashBurner. Trashit wouldn't take the file (presumably as it was already in the trash) and...
