Maybe you should empty the trash as you clean up rather than wait till you log out?
I've cleaning out my iMac, OS 10.8.5.
I may have done sent too much to trash.
Now, when I trash anything it takes many minutes if it's one page item, a couple of hrs.--really--for longer ones.
I can't log out because trashing isn't complete.
Why did this happen?
What can I do to make sure it doesn't happen again?
