    Hi Toine, Generally, the "option-trash" trick works fine.If t doesn't, you could unlock all files.To unlock a file, select it and choose File > Get Info and deselect the "Locked" checkbox. You could do this for every files, but this can be time consuming. You could also use any of these free utilities : Trash It!
