I have an empty folder in the trash that will not cooperate and empty when directed.

I have "option/empty trash," unlocked folder, but the item still will not empty.

Any ideas?

thank you

This is kind of a long shot, but try dragging the folder out of the trash, emptying the trash, and dragging it back in the trash and emptying it again. It might work...
