Response to: deleting large numbers of files

I have had success with "rm -rf" for many "untrashable" files.Open terminal


sudo rm -rf


Leave the cursor one space from end of -rf .Then drag the folder containing the files onto the terminal window and it will automatically enter path. The cool thing is the -rf modifier will recursively delete all the files and folders!
