I’m Sure I Don’t Want to Continue
When I try to drop files in the Trash, the Finder gives me this awful dialog box. I really don’t want to delete files immediately, and am not sure why it wants to. Does anyone know what I do to fix this?
 It’s awful for two reasons: First, it gives me no advice on what’s causing this, or what I can do to fix it, and second, it uses “OK/Cancel,” rather than “Delete/Keep/Adjust Trash Settings.”
[Update: Ok, its not awful. It’s comprehensible, but not up to Apple’s usual standards. Also, according to “Prevent local files from being deleted immediately” on MaxOSXHints, if you delete ~/.Trash, this can happen. I seem to recall using the command ‘srm -rf ~/.Trash/’ yesterday, and could it’s conceivable that I forgot the trailing slash. Now while it makes perfect sense that ‘rm foo’ and ‘rm foo/’ are different, its an odd interaction between the UNIX side of OSX and the pretty bits.]
