Use OS 9 to delete huge files that OS X won't delete
Authored by: foodragon on Mar 17, '04 09:14:16AM

I actually have a problem similar to this, I use to have a an mp3 with some weird characters in it that I decided I didn't want anymore, so I was able to drag it into the trash, but that's as far as I get. Upon trying to empty the trash the finder gives me an error -43. So I figured I'd give rm a try, no good, the terminal it the file name comes up as Bj??????- Live In Cambridge.mp3 and when I goto rm the the and hit tab to fill in the file name it comes out with this Bj\355\266\206\355\271\240-\ Live\ In\ Cambridge.mp3 even doin rm -f didn't work, try some of the other things in this thread such as echo >, no go. I've really been trying to figure a way to get rid of it as i don't have os 9. any ideas guys?
