Can’t Trash Files in High Sierra 10.13.1

Not exactly a security issue but I thought I share a interesting computer tip for the expert users.

I recently got a problem of cant’t put any files into Trash on my Mac running High Sierra 10.13.1 Beta.  After some head scratching I finally found a fix and would like to share the solution.  I believe that this solution should work with other version of Mac OS as well.

  1. Open Terminal
  2. sudo rm -frv ~/.Trash

  3. mkdir -v ~/.Trash

  4. killall Finder
  5. Close Terminal
  6. Reboot computer
