Question: I can't empty trash
Somehow seven folders from Time Machine have entered the trash and I can't empty them. I'm getting messages that the folders and items are in use for all seven. Other non-related items are still being emptied normally.
I followed all of the suggestions in an Apple support bulletin published on Nov 13, 2017 and thought I had solved the problem when I saw that the trash was empty, but after restarting my MacBook Pro the same files reappeared and again could not be emptied.
