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:

  1. You can't get rid of trash items manually.
  2. You can't more...
