You can choose one of three ways to delete files without the Trash:

  • Drag & drop files to the application icon in the Dock. Application doesn't necessarily launch.
  • Drag & drop files to the application icon in the Toolbar. more...

Not fully functional on Mavericks 10.9.2...cannot attach to Finder tool bar, and closes when you delete an item using the menu bar icon. Waiting for an update................

I use it to rapidly free-up space on my USB keys without being forced to commit to emptying all of the trash accumulated on my main disk at same time.

In the past I've used the Super EmptyTrash applescript. This App is more convenient & elegant. The App icon lives permanently in my finder toolbar. When I want to selectively do a permanent delete of a file I drag it to the icon.

• Excellent value for money.

Its a good single task app. Here are some suggestions for taking it to the next level of refinement:
• Would benefit from having a progress bar during deletion
• Also be nice to be able to right-click a file and select option to do a "trash without"
• Won't operate on items already sitting in OS X's trash
• The app throws up an awkwardly worded dialogue. I propose developer uses the following wording "Permanently delete the 5 selected items? Important: Once deleted items can not be recovered."

What explains the desire to delete without using Trash? Seems like a big nothing to me. In any event, the marketing language is inadequate to explain the nature and purpose of this app.

I assume it's to save a little time, instead of sending it to the trash, then emptying the trash yadda yadda. You just have to be pretty damn sure you want to delete the file.
