TrashMagic is a protection tool for the Trash contents. When installed, you can recover any data even weeks after emptying the Trash. Compared to Time Machine that creates a backup every hour and cannot recover a file received or modified, and deleted between two backups, TrashMagic provides continuous protection. With its auto-empty and data retain options, TrashMagic makes your Trash a Smart Trash.

This app has saved my bacon a number of times. I'll admit I've trashed files I later needed back (and Time Machine didn't have backed up). If you charge by the hour, the time you save in recovering a file you didn't really want trashed will pay for this utility the first time you use it.

This developer is delusional if s/he thinks many folks will pay $29 for this app. I wouldn't have paid any more than $12 for this functionality even before Unblunder offered it for $10. But because s/he was so greedy, now everyone is flocking to Unblunder and thumbing their nose at TrashMagic.

Let that be a lesson to all the other d1ckhead developers who are charging an arm and a leg for their wares when the world economy is in deep recession and so many are unemployed.

This is a useful app. Unfortunately for this developer the new Mac OSX - Leopard has this functionality built in amongst a whole host of other wonderful stuff...and the OS costs $129 while this app alone costs $49.

However that said I've been using it now for a few weekss and am quite happy with it. One problem I've come across: I've put TrashMagic in my startup items. I've a MacBook that logs out automatically after an hour of inactivity. When I log back in I always get an error message from TrashMagic telling me it couldn't start. A bit annoying really.

It is said that Leopard has most of these features as TrashMagic. What features are these, and how do I access them in Leopard?

As far as I've seen, Leopard has no undo for emptying the trash.

I think he's referring to Time Machine. I've used it when I've lost stuff or an upgrade goes bad and it works great in either case.

... and for $49... you would atleast invest in some better icons for this app.

There absolutely ugly and I don't want my Mac looking downgraded.

This application could be useful to those who use plain "Empty Trash" command. In such a case I could justify $49 price tag. On the other hand, if you use "Secure Empty Trash" or delete the contents of the Trash via Terminal, the data being previously trashed is gone forever.
