Please help me remove folder '/private/var/root/Android' on my Mac. I make sudo rm -rf /private/var/root/Library/Android/ but nothing happens.

Any ideas, I will be very grateful.

  • Can you please run ls -ld /private/var/root/Library/Android /private/var/root/Library and copy/paste the result into your question (there is an edit link at the bottom of it)? – nohillside Apr 3 '17 at 14:51
  • Ah, and actually, do you want to remove /private/var/root/Android or /private/var/root/Library/Android/? Please check the path names – nohillside Apr 3 '17 at 14:56
  • The path names: /private/var/root/Library/Android/ – Mykola Ostafiychuk Apr 4 '17 at 14:39
  • Result for 1 question: drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Mar 29 16:07 /private/var/root/Library/Android – Mykola Ostafiychuk Apr 4 '17 at 14:41
  • Run sudo rm -r /private/var/root/Library/Android/ then and add the error message you get to the question (the -f you are using suppresses any errors). – nohillside Apr 4 '17 at 14:43

Those paths don't match. To remove a folder, you need to provide the exact path to the folder:

sudo rm -rf /private/var/root/Android
