Empty meaning vacio.

Pitcher- Jarra.

Therefore I ca apply these words in my examples that I going write in this moment.


For accident my computer eraser the data files that I had in my desktop yesterday and well, now my desktop is empty.

By accident, my computer erased the data files that I had in (I'd use on) my desktop yesterday and, well, now my desktop is empty.

My wife did one pitcher full to orange's* juice.

My wife made one pitcher full of orange juice.

*(Orange's juice would mean it is the juice of the orange, which is technically correct, but we'd just say "orange juice", as that's what we call that drink).
I hope that helps.

there are too many verbs that you can use them different way》 for example
to take : llevar or tomar, take it. take this lessons.
to be: ser or estar , you have to learn these specials verbs.

We actually can use "take" in that capacity in English aswell, though I think it's a bit more coloquial. (I can't spell that word!)
