Full but empty trashcan


You had times the problem. That the trash can be filled, but is empty? Is there a cache file to delete or another way to fix this?


So, the icon shows a filled trash can, but when you open it it’s actually empty?

Only thing I can think of, is doing a “checkfs” on all the partitions. I always use the “-c” parameter first to do a simulation before having checkfs fix stuff. Gives me the opportunity to backup things first…
