Trash It! is a little application force-empties your Trash. It also supports Drag and Drop. Especially useful if you have files or folders in the Trash stuck in the trash, need to delete locked files/folders, or want to delete large amounts of files/folders very quickly. If you drop files or folders onto the Trash It! icon, it will delete them. If you double-click on it, it will empty your Trash can. This is the software Apple Tech recommends when all else fails (according to users)!
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 (e.g., previous system folders).
- You’re ready to pull your hair out because nothing seems to be working! 🙂
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. There is a hardware bug with 10.6 running on certain Macs that causes Trash It! to unexpectedly quit on launch. Please use v5.x if you experience this problem.
