I wanted to delete some files on an SD card but then emptying the trash would take too long so I just canceled it and went with terminal to wipe it manually with rm -rf

But then there are some directories that have some files that show up like they're there, but then when trying to delete or list them I get No such file or directory. Trying to delete the directory with rm -rf gets Directory not empty.

Disk Utility won't fix it.
I'd like not to have to format the SD card if possible.

    Have you tried rm after cd-ing to /Volumes/SD16GB/.Trashes (assuming you don't need anything in the trash)? – NoahL Apr 25 '17 at 5:25
  • @NoahL Yes, I did. Didn't work. – Petruza Apr 27 '17 at 2:23
