    Ever have this issue where you find “DiskSpeedTestTemp” files on your computer?

    I have a 2019 Mac Pro Catalina with 20 of these ghost files at 5.36GB each.
    There is no way of getting rid of them.
    I even deleted the DiskSpeed app.

    Eric, Have you tried restarting your mac in “Command R” mode, going to Terminal and typing in “csrutil disable”. Then restarting on your boot drive normally and putting your unwanted files in the trash and deleting them? That should make the trash work. Buy now you have to go back – restart, go to terminal and type in “csrutil enable”. Then restart again to your preferred boot drive? I think I got that right. Anyway, that works for me when I find files in the trash which refuse to empty. Best wishes, Harry. Let me know if this works for you.

    No luck with the csrutil disabled.

    The files are ghosts. They don’t actually reside anywhere (no file path).

    Deleting BMD Disk Speed did not help remove them.

    I checked other Macs and this file does not exist on any of them.

    They too have the BMD app and the only diff is that the problem one is a 2019 and the others are 2013.
