I have not had a chance to truly evaluate the program, but here are my first impressions: Does what it says, clean and simple interface.. Handled my 11,690 files pretty nicely! A few suggestions: a) Why is the dmg in a sit file? b) The application icon and disk image background are of a much lower quality than the rest of the app c) upon initial startup you should display the preferences - otherwise people may not know where to get started d) if you disable the app, can you make it move the files back to the trash? Overall, great 1.0 and I look forward to following the development of this app.

Have you ever trashed something and and later regretted it, wishing that you could somehow go back in time and recover it? That's exactly what this program allows you to do! And the best part is its simple and easy to use. Right now I'm evaluating it and so far it performs as advertised and runs without flaw. To be able to recover something you wish you hadn't zapped is worth the $20.00 to me and I will no doubt be purchasing this product in the very near future. - Russell

Works OK but no way would I pay $20 for this. Maybe $8. But I'd buy it only if I needed the recovery feature, which I don't. Supposedly, one can choose to have the trash deleted securely, but I could find no way to enable that function. And what do they mean by "secure"? Some consider 3 overwrites secure but I don't. At least 7 overwrites are necessary for that.

From the developers website: "When you drag a file to the Trash, TrashCache will intercept the file and leave an alias in the Trash. When you empty the Trash, the alias is deleted, but the original file remains intact." If I'm reading that right I can't actually empty the trash. If I think I'm emptying the trash, I'm really not. I'm just deleting an alias of the file I want to delete, but sometime in the future TrashCache will actually delete the file? Interesting, I guess.

Be shure to try the free TrashTimer (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/16164) if you don't need the recovery features.

Should add a built-in compression algorithm then change its name to Trash Compactor.
