View Full Version : emptying OS 9 trash from OS X
03-03-2002, 11:33 AM
Is there any way to empty the OS 9 trash from OS X without booting into 9? I'm running 10.1.2 and 9.2.2. Now & then my classic apps freeze requiring a force quit and restart of classic. This seems to generate a lot of rescued items in the trash. The classic apps I'm running are Photoshop, GoLive, ImageReady, and sometimes Office 98. Thanks.

In the terminal:
cd /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ 9/.Trash
rm -rf *
Works for me, though you should make sure you really want to trash everything in the os 9 trash before doing this. (Use ls after the cd command to check the contents)

If you want a UI solution, BatChmod will also force empty trash on all partitions. It's frreeware and you can get it on versiontracker.com
