CrashPlan.app somehow make its app folder not immutable, so that sometimes it causes problem when deleting it from Time Machine backups.

I am somehow having problem on El Capitan 10.11 beta that local Time Machine backups are taking all my spaces. So I disabled it but have problem emptying the trash. And it is CrashPlan.app.

This is the command to use:

> chflags noschg CrashPlan.app # this removes system immutable flag

> chflags nouchg CrashPlan.app # this removes the user immutable flag

In my case I used chflags -R noschg/nouchg .Mobilebackup.trash

Finally got my SSD space back.
