If you have started using a Macbook after a Windows machine probably you are frustrated with the Trash. In Windows you can easily delete single files from your Trash forever by simply pressing Delete button after you choose the file. In Mac OS though it is not that easy because Mac OS doesn’t want you use the Trash as a depository for your unwanted files. It keeps the files in the Trash in case you delete a file by accident and want to put it back. You can empty your whole Trash but you are not allowed to delete the files one by one… I mean you are not allowed to do it from the Trash but there is a back door of course
Open the Terminal which is under Launchpad>Other or Launchpad>Utilities. A new window will appear with some weird alien language written in it. Type the following phrase
Now your file named “filename” is gone. By the way you need to type the filename with its extension like rm .Trash/Emrevideo2.mp4
A small advice; arrange the files in the Trash according to their Size. This way you can see the biggest files that you definitely want to get rid of for more hard drive space and before you delete a file, give it a different and easier name, something like aa.mp4 It will be easier to type the file’s name in Terminal.
