Garbage Man is a small application the enhances Mac OS X's Trash. In previous Mac operating systems (Mac OS 9) emptying the trash would yield a dialog box telling me how many items and how much data was stored in the trash. Effectivley it would tell me how much space I would be getting back by emptying the trash.
This feature is annoyingly absent in Mac OS X so I decided to make a fix. Double-clicking this program with tell you how many files are in your trash and how much space they take up. It will also give you the option of emptyiing the trash.
Try our new feature and write a detailed review about Garbage Man. All reviews will be posted soon.
A great trash addition would be to "hack" the empty trash dialog box so that it will display these missing bits of info, and to have marked checkboxs for those drives you want to empty the trash from.
There are a few networked drives I have that I do not want empty the trash on, while they are connected, and this would be a very useful addition.
Just a thought...
It's a great, simple little app which does exactly what it says it does. No more, no less. And it DOES empty your trash. The bug I've encountered is that it does not (for me) replace the 'trash full' icon with the 'trash empty' icon. Other than that, I really appreciate the return of an OS9 feature I'd missed in OSX.
