I have a 1TB main drive where ~400GB seemingly got stuck in
/Volumes/Time Machine Backups/ after the 10.14 update.
I managed to delete most of it, but some files and folders are extremely resilient to being deleted.
For example I am stuck with a folder:
I am unable to delete it, even trying
rm -rf as root. When I examine the folder from the terminal I get:
sh-3.2# whoami root sh-3.2# pwd /Volumes/Time Machine[...]/private/var/db/ConfigurationProfiles sh-3.2# ls -la ls: Store: Operation not permitted total 0 drwxr-xr-x@ 3 root wheel 96 Oct 12 22:18 . drwxr-xr-x@ 3 root wheel 96 Oct 12 22:18 ..
Interestingly enough, when I open the same folder in
mc, a file
?Store is present:
Since I have a bunch of folders around with similar problems, I was wondering what the easiest and most convenient way to delete all of them is.
Things I tried that don't work:
sudo rm -rf ...
- Granting Terminal full disk access in security settings
Is there a tool or simple command that acts like
rm -f and really just deletes a file, no matter what?
