I recently deleted the backups folder from my time machine. Before realizing what may be the problem I tried deleting the stick files from my trash with a number of methods like rf -Rm, sudo, trash it!, And a few others.
None of these worked. I think it might have to do with the backups folder being in the trash. I can't seem to recover the folder from the trash so I'm in a bind. I need hard drive space for the work I'm trying to do and cannot get this stuff out of my trash.
Please help, someone!
