Super Empty Trash overview

Super Empty Trash is a simple Automator workflow that will empty the Trash with administrator privileges. In order to do that the user has to be an Administrator, or at least provide administrative credentials.

In case of multiple volumes the user is prompted in order to choose volume(s) to be considered.

This can be very useful in case of selective deletion or removable media (like flash drives).

What’s new in version 3.0

Version 3.0:
  • Rewritten as an Automator workflow under Mojave, is supposed to work up to Big Sur.
