    Dear Friend..

    Some time because of virus or hardware issue, the file automatically locked in the device due to which its very difficult to delete it.
    May be these files are permanent files.
    This problem also occurs because of virus as well.

    The only solution for this problem is you just scan your external hard disk with a strong Anti-Virus and then remove all the threats,
    Once it is removed, then delete those files,

    If the problem still persist, then try to use a software for deleting the files name Permanent Erase.
    http://www.macupdate.com/download/14776/permanenteraser.dmg

    Once you installed this in your device, it deletes all kind of files whether it permanent or temporary,
    Hope this help you,

    Thank you..

    Dear Friend..

    Many a times, we are install so many software and applications in our device which also have lots of installed files.
    These files should goes in their installed folder location means Drive C but sometime it doesn't happens.

    Instead of going these files in their destination folder, they comes in other drive and later creates problems when you want to delete because now they become permanent files.

    If you tried to delete them forcefully then it could damage your device internally or format the hard disk.

    So, the solution is that whenever you install any setup of a software, just choose its location or destination in your device whether it is in MacBook or in other device.
    After doing this, you can install the apps and prevent your external drive to such files.

    Hope you get it,
    Thank you.. )
