Trashes Folder On External Hard Drive Mac

  1. Why Can't I Make A New Folder On My External Hard Drive Mac
I know this will sound very weird, but I cannot empty a LOCKED MUSIC file in my trash can, which only appears when my Western Digital external drive is connected. Holding down Option does not work either. If I eject my WD external hard drive, the trash can goes back to 'empty.' Does anyone know how I can fix this?? It's driving me NUTS!! There is a 'recovery' file on the WD drive that says 'Recycled' and there's a locked file in there titled 'Dj68' - I tried to delete the entire 'recycled' file but my Mac won't let me. I plugged it in to my PC to delete it and the file disappears. Any one have any suggestions???? Thank you! Janet

  1. Those files were not permanently removed until you emptied the Trash. Here are the steps to restore files from Trash. Connect your external hard drive to Mac and navigate to Trash. Locate the abandoned file in the trash folder, and use 'Copy Items' to recover the files back to their original spot. By the way, the 'Put Back.
  2. Nov 09, 2008 Same here. Couldn't figure out why the items in my trash wouldn't delete when my hard drive was plugged in. It got really annoying when I ran into space issues with what appeared to be an almost empty drive. Opened it up in Windows and showed hidden files. The trashes folder was almost 150GB.
