deleting those files that dont want to go away
on Jan 18, 2006 at 7:29:17 pm

i have a backup folder from a previous install, and have placed everything and thrown what i dont need after all, there are however a few fonts that are locked, and for some reason not able to be trashed. i looked at them with 'get info' and tried to make sure they were read/write allowed. i remember this from OS9 days, any ideas?

Lot's of ways to delete them, but I'm lazy and usually just have this on my desktop for the rare cases that I need it: http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/14884

These also can do it, but have many other uses/features: http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/26516 or http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/12057

I'm sure you'll get a few other suggestion as there are many ways to delete those fonts and other locked files in OS X.

Tony!
