Trash It! is an AppleScript-based application that force-empties your Trash and/or removes stubborn items. Especially useful if you have files or folders in the Trash with permissions set incorrectly, locked Trash items, want to securely delete a stuck item, or trash items from other partitions. If you drop files or folders onto the Trash It! icon, it will delete them as well. If you double-click on it, it will clean out your Trash can. This is the software recommended by Apple Tech support when all else fails!
Trash It! should be used when: You can't get rid of trash items manually. You can't move items to the trash. You have a large number of items to delete (i.e., previous system folders). You just like using cool scripts. :) This is not a Finder trash can replacement! It should be used as a last resort!
Please note: Older versions of Trash It! are available here.
