So I have a new 15" MBP and I have a 500GB Western Digital external hard drive (Firewire 800). It's basically full since I backed up two machines on it, and now I'm trying to empty the backups from the WD external HD. But for some reason it won't let me. It's giving me an error saying "Cannot delete some items because they are locked"........??????

So how can I go about freeing up space on my external HD? Right now I'm just taking the backups and dragging them into my trash can. When I try to secure empty the trash bin, it gives me the error. Any thoughts?
