Not sure if this is where this post belongs, and if it's in the wrong place, I apologize in advance.
Have a Maxtor external drive, PowerBook G4 1.33. Cannot delete two files, says that the items are in use. This all came about after a power outage here during a storm... Have tried to use DiskWarrior 4.0 and to no avail. Cannot force empty, again, files in use. Would appreciate any assistance with this. I am NOT Terminal savvy, but not afraid of it. Additionally, running 10.4.11 and again, the problem is only with the external drive. Not a hardware failure to the best of my knowledge...
