Question: Trash emptying for two days!
I noticed that the trash bin was full on my iMac. Instinctively, I tried to empty the trash, however it is full of old Time Machine backups which contains "system" files along with others that would normally not be recommended for deletion. Being backups, it shouldn't matter much, however it has been emptying for two days now and over 1.2 million files. (No wonder the computer was performing so slowly!).
Apart from keeping an eye on the trash and emptying more regularly, any ideas on how to avoid this in the future?
MacBook Air, OS X Yosemite (10.10.1)
