check to see what process is using this folder.
run the following terminal command
sudo lsof path/to/folder
to get the path to the folder in question drag it to the terminal window. make sure all the spaces in the command are present as given.you'll have to enter your admin password (which you won't see). that's normal.
Not sure what I did, but after plugging and unplugging my LaCie Rugged external hard drive from different computers (while still spinning, I know, egads!) I was finally able to delete the pesky folder, which incidentally had nothing of value within it.
Although not the best mainstream method of solving the problem, it worked. This time.
Thanks for your help! Rich
