Use OS 9 to delete huge files that OS X won't delete
Authored by: stcanard on Mar 16, '04 02:43:56PM

Best bet is that something still had the file open; obviously going to OS9 would fix that issue.

If you ever have a file you absolutely cannot delete, go to terminal and try:

lsof <filename>

That will list all processes that have the file open. Killing the process will allow you to delete the file. 99% of the time this is the issue with something like this.
