Aperture trash will not empty. Cannot delete pictures. I tried option key no luck. I tried every single troubleshooting technique on the support page, even reinstalled Aperture. What else can I do?

Aperture 3, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    Where is your Aperture library located? On an external drive or your system drive? Sometimes your Aperture trash cannot be emptied, because Aperture cannot write to the system trash,


    Make a check with a new, empty Aperture library. Import some image files, try to trash them. Do they turn up in the trash in your Dock?
