Double-click on the Trash icon to open, then you can use Ctrl-A to mark all, and hit Delete. Or, you can do it through the menu by opening 'File' and clicking on "Empty recycle bin."

I accidently deleted my email a/c on my computer how do I retrieve it?


Files in the trash are protected. Once the trash is emptied the storage location those files occupy (on the hard drive) are marked as useable. They may be overwritten already. The more you do the higher that likelihood becomes that the date becomes unrecoverable. Piriform offers "Recuva" a free (for home use) tool to recover deleted files on a Windows machine. Get it at the link below and Good Luck!

My start up disk is full


Start by emptying the trash on the desktop.

Next, launch iPhoto. Photos that you delete are stored in a separate trash can within the app. Give it a final look and then "empty trash"

Lastly, Empty the trash and spam folders in your email program. Sometimes, I sort all mail by email attachment size. Rarely need the over sized emails. Jokes and movies that got a chuckle last month and be tossed.

I recently found a 40gb of wasted space.

Can't delete emails from trash


Hello sir !

Empty Trash Can


In 1982, when Apple created the Apple Lisa user interface, they implemented what they called the Trash Can. The trash can is essentially purgatory for files a user no longer wants. Once sent to the trash, the user has the option of restoring the file back to its original place, or annihilating it completely from the computer’s hard drive. Unless there is a backup of a user’s system from before the file was sent to the trash, there is essentially no way of restoring that file once the trash has been emptied.
This metaphor was carried over to Windows 95 in the form of a Recycle Bin. Perched on the desktop of countless millions of averages users was this bin which, when empty, looked empty, and when it contained files, looked full.
There is safety in the Trash Can metaphor. I know that in order to really delete a file from my system, either on Windows or on Mac OS X, I really have to work at it. Yes, there are times when files are accidentally deleted, but for the most part if I realize my mistake before I empty my Trash, I know the file is safe.

Message trash empty try to record and get camera full


someone else posted on another feed, and it worked SO well I had to restate it here.
Empty the trash on your mac. I had the same problem, "Camera is full" but in actuality "Camera was empty". This guy said to plug the camera into the computer (macs in our cases) and empty the trash folder on your computer.
Fixed my problem completely and I didn't have to do anything crazy! Now next time it happens I'll know what to do, hope it helps you too! :)

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.
