For several days I have been trying to delete folders from a NAS server. All the time it says when moving to trash "The operation can’t be completed because the item “” is in use." even though I have restarted both computer and server hundreds of times. I have also been trying with the terminal with following

 

sudo rm -rf foldername (including complete path)

sudo rm -r foldername (including complete path)

sudo rm -rfd foldername (including complete path)

sudo rm -fd foldername (including complete path)

sudo rm -R -v foldername (including complete path)

 

All the time I get the message "Directory not empty"

 

I also tried with sudo chflags -R nouchg (including complete path) but still the same problem when trying to delete

 

It seems impossible to delete this folders from the NAS server, why is it like this!!!? Very frustrating!

 

I can rename the folder and move the folder but trying to delete = impossible!!

 

Any solution that works or is this a common problem for mac users? Windows users seems not to have this problem...

 

Is this a bug?
