Question: Very slow to empty Trash

Even when I have dropped only one picture into the trash icon, and then empty it, the popup box asks if I am sure and, after clicking continue the popup box goes away but it takes a very long time to empty the trash...WHY? I have really only noticed this for a month or so. I have a MAC running OS Sierra and all updates are installed.

iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2015), Version 10.13.1

Answer:

Yes, I thought you were running Snow Leopard because you posted in the SL forum.

You can try rebuilding the Trash:

Launch Terminal and at the prompt copy & paste this command:

sudo rm -rf ~/.Trash/*

Press Return.
