On an external FAT32 hard drive there is a file in the Bin (
.Trashes) which I cannot delete. Even when I try to delete it on the command line using
I get an error
rm: offending_file: No such file or directory
I also just ran the "First Aid" from the "Disk Utility" but that tool did not find any issues.
So what else can I do to remove/fix that file?
Also, when I try to remove the folder containing that file with
rm -rf folder
I get the error
rm: folder/: Permission denied
even when I run the command with
ls -l of the containing folder shows
-rwx------ 1 alex staff 67755741 Oct 18 04:51 offending_file
When opening the "Bin" on MacOS I only see an empty folder I cannot delete immediately as an error pops up saying the item "is in use", which, of course, is not the case.
