Trash won't empty in 10.7.4

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Weird issue folks. Can't get the trash to empty the normal way, I have to use OnyX to do it. Checked system with disk utility etc and all checks out ok. Files that are trashed are not locked either. Has anybody else experienced this since updating to Lion? It just recently started, as when I first updated to Lion everything was working normally. No clue as to what could have caused this minor problem.

This happened to me and I did Secure Empty Trash and it worked fine for me.

I suggest you go into an Apple Reseller and perhaps they can find your solution to this problem.
