Try closing all programs first, then go to trash can and hold "ctrl" and left click. Then click empty trash, this should let you can everything unless you are trying to trash an application that is still running. To find out if you are hold "apple, FN, ESC" it will bring up task manager.

I delete my emails by mistake, how can I retreive it back please. It is very urgent and important.


Hi . If you deleted your email messages and the trash folder hasn't been cleared out yet, you'll be able to find it there. In the TRASH FOLDER. You can find it in the list of folders on the left pane of Yahoo! Mail.

Hope this helps. Have a great day. :)

I have lost all my e-mails from 2002 till 2009, can you help retrieve them?


Deleting messagesPrint
1)Gmail lets you delete either an entire conversation or one message from a conversation. Deleted messages are a lot like the stuff in the trash can in your kitchen: eventually, it's all going in the big dumpster outside, but for a little while, you can still rummage through it if you lost something important. Gmail will empty messages from your Trash automatically after 30 days, or you can permanently delete messages yourself.
2)Here's how you can get rid of an entire conversation:
Open the message (or select the checkbox next to it).
Click the Delete button to move the message to Trash.
3)And here's how you'd preserve most of a near-perfect conversation, but forget about a single message:
Open the conversation and find the message in question.
Click the down arrow next to Reply, at the top right of the message pane.
Click Delete this message.
Oh no! I've made a terrible mistake! I want that message back!
4)It's okay. Just after you delete a message, a yellow bar with an Undo link appears at the top of the page. If you click it, your message will be moved from Trash back to its original location. As long as your change of heart occurs within 30 days of deleting the message, you can also retrieve it from Trash by clicking Trash, selecting the message in question, and clicking Move to Inbox. This won't work if you've already permanently deleted the message, though.
No, really. I don't even like having that message in my Trash. Please take it away.
Once a message is in Trash, Gmail will delete it in 30 days, but you're more than welcome to delete it permanently yourself.
5)Click Trash along the left side of any Gmail page. (If you don't see Trash along the left side of your Gmail page, click more above Contacts on the left side of the page.)
Check the box next to the message you'd like to permanently delete.
Click Delete Forever. This time, it's really gone forever.

thanks for rating

How to download sent mail from gmail to Outlook 2003. can anyone help me out


Hi,,

Step A: Clear all message from the GMail Trash folder by selecting "Empty Trash Now"

Step B: Open the Sent Mails folder and choose Select All. You'll now see a new link saying "Select all n conversations in Sent Mail" - Click that.

Step C: Select the "More Actions" drop-down and apply a new unique label like "WorkUnderProgress"

Step D: Select the "More Actions" drop-down again and choose Delete action this time [Don't be scared, logically we are just moving email from one folder to another]

Step E: Start Microsoft Outlook (or Thunderbird or Apple Mail), setup the POP configuration and start downloading your GMail locally. The items in Trash section of your GMail account won't be downloaded.

Step F: Once the download is complete, goto the GMail Trash folder and select all messages. Click the "Move to Inbox" button (be careful not to press the Delete Forever which is just next)

Step G: Goto the WorkUnderProgress folder, select all messages and click the Archive Button. Then from the drop down, choose Remove Label - WorkUnderProgress.


Have a nice day

Cannot delete files from Maxtor Hard Drive on Mac


Hi Simon Is there a problem deleting or is it that you just don't know how to do it?
If it's the former you need to supply a bit more info. If it's the latter then it's very easy.
Highlight the file you want to delete, right-click and select move to trash (second item down).
This moves the file to the trash but doesn't delete it.
Next you can right-click on the trash icon in the dock and choose Empty trash or go to the finder menu and select empty trash from there. After that your files should have been deleted from the maxtor.
Simple eh?

Locked files- can't trash them


Hi there
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.

Flip video camcorder says camcorder full and then camcorder empty


I found the solution!
Just put the Flip camera back into any computer on which you deleted files — then, with the Flip camera still attached, empty your trash bin.
All of the time comes right back. The only catch is if you have deleted files on many different computers. At some point, you will have to go back to those computers, insert the Flip, empty the trash and then you'll get your minutes back.
It's awesome. I am back in love with the Flip.
