Question about Apple Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger for Mac
Hi. I have been sorting out files in my external HDD. I have some 'locked files' which I don't know how they were locked but possibly via handheld ipaq which I once owned. Now I can't trash them because they are locked but somehow they are also in the trash and i can't empty the trash becuase they are locked here also. What do I do?? Help please...much appreciated, Chris
the easiest way to do this is hold down your option key as you select empty trash. That should over ride the lock.
If that does not work. Single click on the file press option 'i' keys and get info about the file. You should be able to click on the unlock button. If you have a lot of files put them into one folder do the same thing to the folder click on the unlock button. There is a small button at the bottom of the info window with a gear on it click on that and apply to all.
That should work.
