I tried to just delete the files by simply sending them to the trash. I emptied the trash and it asked me if i wanted to delete the locked files as well. after selecting yes it made the defult sound but the files were still there. When i unplugged my external the files disappeared. but upon plugging in my external back in the files are back in my trash. Please advise?  i have a macbook pro and have not really added anything and have had no issues other than this and all im trying to do is erase the backup on the segate (i have alot of files on here i wish to save)  and use a deticated HD just for back-ups

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3)

Try some of the suggestions in this article.  Holding the Opt key while emptying the trash, may do it. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1526
