Cannot delete Testdisk as it is in use?

#1 Post by gojiramitch » 04 Feb 2015, 08:42

Hi all,
Apologies if this is in the wrong board, but I am having trouble deleting/uninstalling Testdisk on my mac. Even though I do not have Testdisk open and running, I am unable to empty it from my trash as it is apparently 'in use'. It is taking up a lot of my cpu, so i need this gone asap.

Does anyone have any solutions?

If you restart your computer, it will not be in use and you will be able to delete the directory where TestDisk is.
