To start, I agree with all comments that have come before this one. I don't think this "developer" knows RAM from disk space, or was it simply a misstatement?

I use AppTrap, a Preference Pane, and am very satisfied. I download and try out many apps every week, creating lots of preference files etc. AppTrap finds these files when I delete an app and asks if I'd like to delete them as well. These files are what can eventually eat up a lot of disk space.

Of course, if you are using only 20% of your hard drive, who cares? :-)

i agree app trap or appzapper both do that but this does something totally different. than those two. what it does is when you just empty your trash nomraly using what the mac provides you it still keeps the files just really small things so you don't get allllll of your memmory your disk space back. from what youd eleted and you can always recover those files. with this it does an automator thing that what it does is runs a terminal command which deletes your trash really fast and also make it so you cna't recover it and you get all your disk space back from the stuff that is in your trash. i mostly think it's helpful that it empties the trash so fast instead of having to wait hours

Would you use something made by a developer that doesn't know memory from disk space?

Trash X by Northern Softworks has been out for years and although this developer chose to remove the space between Trash and X, why would you use another developer's product name?

This suspicious-sounding app seems to be innocuous. It's a wrapper for a trivial Automator workflow that empties the user's Trash folder with root privileges after prompting for an administrator password. There's no real need for it.

On general principle, such things should be avoided.

What on earth does this app do?
When you empty your trash, you don't get your memory back? What does that mean?

it means that when you just do empty trash files still stay on your computer and so you are losing memmory still but if you use this it will take that way

OK, but this is simply no true. Files on your hardrive do not use memory.

really i have not tried it but 10mb seems rather large for an app that just empties or securely deletes your trash ....or is the memory clearing aspect an extra unexplained step?
