Folders refusing to be trashed
Friend has three stubborn "untitled" folders sitting on her desktop. They cannot be moved, renamed, or put in the trash via Finder. They stand up to "sudo rm" command in the Terminal, with a general "dave I can't do this" type of message. There's no "cleanup" type of program running nor any anti-virus-malware type of software. I checked for Malware with an old version of Malwarebytes. She was running Mavericks. I thought for sure upgrading her to El Capitan would free those folders, but no. Any ideas? I'd rather not create a new user account to solve this.
What does the following Terminal command say?
/bin/ls -ldeO@ ~/Desktop/untitled\ folder
Substitute the correct name.
What I'm looking for is either a flag that says uchg, or uchange, or uimmutable, or schg, or schange, or simmutable.
The chflags command can be used to remove those flags.
Or an ACL (Access Control List) that is preventing the delete. The chmod command can be used to remove ACLs.
