Trash - iMac
Dec 10, 2009

After clearing out my trash I appear to be left with about 60 folders (380,000 files according to the counter in the trash) which look like they are back-up copies of all of my hard-drive. Each one is named something like 2009-05-20-092057. Inside looks to be an exact copy of everything on my harddrive - apps, docs, photos, music etc - opening any file in the viewer shows the details

I have tried to delete these but every time it comes back and says they are locked (something along the lines of your video is locked/secure, your photos are locked/secure etc).

I am concerned that these are clogging my hardrive (I dont have much space left) but cannot get the lock off and am worried that they might be important.

Any ideas how I can delete them?

Thanks
