Adds size and number of items deleting in Trash.

Overview

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.

Great idea and the value can't be beat but it won't empty the trash as it indicates it should. If it does I didn't have the time to wait for it!

I love this app, but on searching potential non-compatible apps with up-coming Rosetta free Lion, find that this app will no longer work.

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.

Garbage Man 1.2 shows a useful message and empties the Trash only for the System Disk. Other disks and removable media are ignored.
