I have facing this problem from past few days


My trash won't empty


I tried to holding down option key and then empty the trash, but it didn't work..

I tried "trash it" but it also did not work

I repaired disk from disk utility pressing CMD+R at boot time ; it also did not work


I got Message at first saying "The Finder can’t complete the operation because some data in “” can’t be read or written. (Error code -36)"

Then I pressed continue and nothing happened

now when I empty the Trash it simply dont empty it..


Please Help.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4)
