Okay, so Motion 5 has been giving me a bit of an issue, when the update came out it was impossible for me to update it. the progress bar in the App Store would get to a certain point (anywhere from 50% to almost 100%) and then simply quit giving me an error message. After looking on these forums I found out that because of a glitch you had to delete the old version of Motion 5 and then download the update from scratch on the App store. That worked fine and I have the updated version of Motion 5, but now I cannot delete the old version from my system.
I tried obviously simply Emptying Trash and when Motion is in there, the progress bar just sits there, empty. No activity although the window shows that the system is preparing to remove it but because of it none of my other files can be deleted either. However, when I remove motion from the trash, I can empty the trash of all the other files perfectly fine, the problem is definitely the Motion 5 app. That bar simply won't move, not even when I left it running over night. I looked online for help and the only conversations I find (over and over again) all refer to when I get a speciifc system error message but that doesn't apply to my situation as I never get any message of any kind ever. The window to empty the trash can appears, shows an empty progress bar and then nothing beyond that no matter how long I leave it run. How do I delete a file from my system WITHOUT going through the Trash? I am hoping for an in system fix becasue I don't want to install ANOTHER app to delete this app just in case I get the same problem with that app too. Any ideas? Thanks.
