Hi,

 

I've tried several methods that either don't work or last very long. OnyX will empty the trash if needed but being a long time happy user of Hazel Helper to cleanup old files, etc., and now it cannot put them in the trash. If the trash has items loaded manually most of them will delete when asked while others will not and that's when I used MainMenu Pro app to force or secure delete the trash and if not OnyX would never fail. However, Hazel Helper sadly can't seem to do her job anymore. I see this error in the log every time it tries to move a file: "Error finding user trash dir: -5000 - Insufficient access privileges for operation"

 

 

I regularlly run OnyX to clean, purge, run permission repairs etc. Any help or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

 

Any thoughts? This problem seemed to start with Lion and become worse with Mountain Lion. Here's a more detailed log excerpt:
