Ubuntu :: Unable To Create Trashing Info File: Read-only File System


I plugged in my USb drive into my computer yesterday and tried to delete a folder. I was unable to do so and got the following message Cannot move file to trash, do you want to delete immediately? The file "my file" cannot be moved to the trash. Show Details Unable to create trashing info file: Read-only file system So when I click on delete I get another error message: Error while deleting. There was an error deleting Case Study Database. Show Details Error removing file: Read-only file system At this point I can only click on Skip, Skip All, or Cancel. I have not changed anything on the stick recently so I dont know what is causing the problem.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Delete Files & Bypass The Trash? discussions.apple.com

Is there a way to completely remove files from my system without moving them to the Trash?  I've read about the Trash, but I'm not clear on EXACTLY how it works. Can I empty A file from the trash or when I click on a file & choose "Emtpy the Trash" does it empty ALL of the files in the Trash or just that one file?  Is there a way to just empty ONLY 1 file from the trash or restore ONLY 1 file from the Trash if so how? ALSO, what are the "rules" for MOVING files rather than COPYing them? I thought files that went from one folder to another on the same drive, were moved & ones that went to different drives were copied.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Delete Simple Backup Folder From Trash ubuntuforums.org

I'm a beginner at backing up my Ubuntu system, but I've set Simple Backup to do a backup once a week. I deleted the oldest of these files, but now it's sitting in my Trash and I can't empty it. I get a permission denied error for the folders within the backup folder in the trash, yet I can't restore the folder either - Ubuntu says it 'failed to determine the original path' for the folder. I've just discovered this in Xubuntu Jaunty, but I'm confident the same will happen in any other WM I choose (I have several installed - I like variety ). It's not a huge file, but it's hanging out there and I'd like to get it either deleted or restored. Possibly I oughtn't to have deleted it in the first place (it usually lives in /var/backup, which I can't access except as root). The files, which I probably deleted /as/ root, show up in my user trash rather than root's trash. I found the trash in ~/.local/share/Trash/files, but I'm not sure if just deleting them as root would be a good.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Finder Search Shows Deleted "phantom" Files discussions.apple.com

I had recently attempted to uninstall Native Instruments FM8, and in an effort to do so, ran searches through my system Library folder and my user Library folder to find anything related to the software and remove them.  Found around 100 preset sound files related to FM8, sent them to the trash and emptied the trash (not securely).  Then after removing every file as listed on NI's website, restarting my computer, and running another Finder search in my Library folder, the sound files I had deleted earlier appear in the Finder search! However, right-clicking the files and selecting Get Info shows no directory for the file, and the files are unable to be deleted or have permissions modified.  I have already used the Disk Utility to repair disk permissions, but these phantom files still remain in my Finder search !  Info: MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3)

Software :: Stop OS X From Creating Trash Folder In Volume Root? macosx.com

When I connect my MP3 player (not an iPod ) to the Mac and delete some files, Mac OS X creates a folder .Trashes in the volume root and just moves all the files I intended to delete there. The only reason to delete files is of course freeing some space... and to free it I have to empty the system trash (which is not good). Is there any way to tell Mac OS X that it should not create a .Trashes folder there and remove the files permanently or at least move them to the trash on the local disk?
