Delete files without them being placed in the trash first.

Overview

Delete without Trash ... This small application adds a missing feature to OS X - the ability to delete a file or folder without placing it to the Trash first. It adds "Delete" and "Delete as Administrator" menu command to Finder's context menu for a file or folder, and also adds the same commands to Services menu for a file system object.

This is exactly what I have been looking for. I sometimes have files I want to delete rather than send to the trash, but I don't need to securely overwrite them 7 or 35 times as the "secure delete" apps do. Delete Without Trash installs two services that are accessible via the contextual menu, and optionally via system-wide hotkeys.

On the dev's website it says "to install this app on OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion or OS X 10.9 Mavericks, please disable GateKeeper before the installation. Right-clicking and choosing Open will display error with GateKeeper enabled." Hmm, I'm not keen on the idea of turning of Gatekeeper, so I think I'll wait until the app is code-signed before re-installing it.

Running Mavericks when I try to install this it says the Install Apple Script is damaged and suggests I delete it. Something that needs to be updated?

Without a hotkey like SHIFT+DELETE this tool is useless Simple Automator Workflow with shell-script rm -rf "$@"

You can add any hotkey you want in System Prefs > Keyboard > Services.

A little but useful app. Does not eat system resources, runs only by demand. I used to delete the files I don't want to Trash (let say some huge files or just files I need to get rid of) using Terminal command, now it will be more efficient. Thanks for this app!
