I tried to empty my trash can and found this un-trashable folder "Backups.backupdb" and when I moved it to the desktop and  opened it, I found these nested folders:


Backups.backupdb > name > name iMac> dates System> Library> CoreServices > boot.efi.


I have no idea how it got in the Trash, what it is and if it should/should not be trashed... if if can be trashed. And if it's needed, where should I move it to... if I can move it off the desktop.

    They are your backups. Return that folder to the external disk with your backups
