Hi guys...well after doing what i did i have now learnt it was wrong and i stuffed up...i have tried EVERYTHING online that i have read BUT STILL CANT WIN!


Im running OSX 10.6.8 and have WD 'My Book 2TB' used as my Time Machine.


I was trying to make more room on my HD and deleted the backup files that were from 2010/2011 and a couple from 2012.


I did the drag and drop in the trash AND NOW understand this was an epic fail.


I cant delete the files from my trash no matter what i do...tried the Terminal option, rebooted, turned off TM, tried to restore the files BUT nothing works...


I need HELP please on how i can get this fixed...essentially i want to empty the trash and one i do so will turn my TM back on and do a new back up.


Theres approx 55 folders of back ups in my trash....please HELP ME
