It works a little different than the toolbar's delete icon, in that you drag items to it, and you can click on it to open the trash. Included are several alternative trash icons as well as the standard OS X one.

I noticed the same problem as Philip below. Luckily I didn't lose anything however.....

THIS IS A BIG BUG!!!

The documentation states that one option to delete is to drag the file to the ToolbarTrash icon which sits in your window menu. However BEWARE IF YOU ATTEMPT THIS WHILE IN COLUMN WINDOW MODE THE ENTIRE PARENT FOLDER WILL ALSO BE DELETED!!!

This means if you tried to delete anything from your Home Folder or Applications folder, then the Home & App folders will go as well!!! Both these folders are too big to fit in the Trash Can so the Finder will simply delete them immediately and all you'll get is an innocent "Please Type Your Administrator Password".

You have been Warned!!

I dragged an item to the toolbar trash icon and it took the whole folder with it. I didn't realize this, emptied the trash and lost the entire folder.

place the invisible .Trash folder, located in your home folder, in the toolbar.

You can use one of the many programs on this site to let you view invisible files.

First off, thanks for not only writing this program but making it for free.

Now to address the other comments here:
1 - Show me HOW to put an alias of the trashcan into the toolbar. Can't be done in 10.2

2 - Same as above

3 - So you've NEVER had to open your trash window to review its contents, er, "rummage?" You must have an amazing memory. Since you can remember the contents of your trash have you USED this program versus the "Delete" function from Apple? Two TOTALLY different animals.

Please try and be INFORMED before you comment, especially on something that is being offered for free.

Last comment (for everyone). Some of us like to trash files without dragging something across the screen to the dock. Ever drag something on a dual-monitor system?

yeah, how is this different to putting an alias to the trash in the toolbar, except that this uses more ram?

Why not just put an alias to the trash in the toolbar?

Oh great, It's an application so it takes more memory! It also opens to allow you to rummage through your garbage. How special! Like I rummage through my garbage everyday so I need it in every Finder window. And Gee, I can customize my Icon to confuse other users of my machine who are used to the "Delete" icon that Apple provides with no extra use of RAM, no compatibility concerns, no chance of memory leaks, etc. Sounds like a great piece of Toolbar Trash and a successor to QuickTrash to me!

Mr.Anonymous:
No it's not the same thing as "delete": its functionality differs to that and of the other you mention. Trashbar is drag and drop, and opens the trash window at a click, The others don't. You've obviously not tried it or read the readme. You might want to have another look...

Gee, the seems like a few of these are popping up. This thing has a use, but you don't need to download it to get it to work. The simple 'Delete' command on the toolbar does the same thing. Not to mention that this seems to be the exactly same thing as QuickTrash. Anyway, do yourself a favor, don't download this, get something like CandyBar if you really want to have a Trash icon in your toolbar.
