.Trashes/501 on ZFS drive exists D:

Postby Redwolf » Tue Jan 19, 2016 2:21 am

Hi everyone!

So I started to realize that even though I delete something in the Finder and I get the warning that the file will be directly deleted, space still seems to fill up fast. It was then that I realized that there's a .Trashes folder on my OpenZFS volume. I tried deleting it in Terminal but getting permission and operations error. In the Finder I go to .Trashes/501 and there's "ghost" folders there. You know, what remains when a move fails. I tried deleting the folders but could only delete all but two of them.

Also these folders are large. I'm worried that they are somehow linked to actual data and if I was able to figure out how to remove them, I'd be deleting files that I didn't mean to delete.

Any help would be great!

I can't figure out how to get the version I have but I updated it about two months ago.

You should not try to remove the .Trashes directory itself or any its immediate subfolders like 501.

The files are unlikely linked to anything else. Can you
Code: Select all
cd /Volumes/whatever
mkdir trashes-old
sudo mv .Trashes/501/* trashes-old

Okay I did that. Can I safely delete what's here? Will it work? It looks like I'll have to change the file permissions though.

I think that the grayed-out-ness may be an xattr or Spotlight metadata.

Out of curiosity,

Code: Select all
cd /Volumes/wherever
sudo ls -ldO trashes-old/Pictures
sudo ls -ldO trashes-old/Software
sudo xattr -l trashes-old/Pictures
sudo xattr -l trashes-old/Software
sudo mdls trashes-old/Pictures
sudo mdls trashes-old/Software
