Removing Stubborn Trash Items
For one reason or another, I recently ended up with a draft blog post stuck in my OS X Yosemite Trash. I have no idea how this happened, but after reading 5 or 6 blogs and forum posts I was thoroughly frustrated with trying to find “the Mac Way”, and fired up the CLI:
cd ~/.Trash sudo chflags -R nouchg <filename> sudo rm -f <filename> echo w00t
Sometimes it is just best to follow your gut, in this case just using the CLI to resolve the issue.
