Been trying to delete some files in my external drive. I'm on my 3rd day already. I have over a million files in it, in several folders created by Time Machine. I was able to make it work for a while, but takes forever since it defaults to Secure Empty. The problem now is, when I try to continue it, after the "Preparing to empty Trash..." prompt, the window just disappears and nothing happens. It's like it just stopped doing its task without any alerts to the problem. I've tried repairing the disk, restarting my unit and disconnecting the drive several times. Has someone encountered this before? And how did you fix this?
