Delete files without using the Trash.

Overview

Trash Without allows you to delete files without "Trash" on your hard disk, USB, memory card. Are you tired of cleaning the Trash of a single large file that you don't exactly need? Do you need to free up disk space urgently, but you have the files in the Trash, which may not have been deleted? The "Trash Without" is the fastest and easiest way to delete files without Trash.

You can choose one of three ways to delete files without the Trash:

  • Drag & drop files to the application icon in the Dock. Application doesn't necessarily launch.
  • Drag & drop files to the application icon in the Toolbar. Application doesn't necessarily launch.
  • Select files for deletion using the dialog box.

V1.4.1 was released in the MAS 11/4/17.

There's a download link on the dev's site, but it downloads v1.3.1 which displays this message when used: "You should launch v.1.1 or later from the App Store before use this version."

I had no intention of keeping this app, just installed to see if the download was free.

I use Path Finder and there's an icon in its toolbar to delete files without sending to Trash, so no need for this app.

If you're using El Capitan, press the Option key while you click on File in the Finder menu bar. Move to Trash option changes to Delete Immediately.

Nice tip. Thanks! Too bad it doesn't also work in the contextual menu, but maybe Apple will add it to a future version if we all submit feedback (hint hint).

I use it to rapidly free-up space on my USB keys without being forced to commit to emptying all of the trash accumulated on my main disk at same time. In the past I've used the Super EmptyTrash applescript. This App is more convenient & elegant. The App icon lives permanently in my finder toolbar. When I want to selectively do a permanent delete of a file I drag it to the icon. • Excellent value for money. Its a good single task app. Here are some suggestions for taking it to the next level of refinement: • Would benefit from having a progress bar during deletion • Also be nice to be able to right-click a file and select option to do a "trash without" • Won't operate on items already sitting in OS X's trash • The app throws up an awkwardly worded dialogue. I propose developer uses the following wording "Permanently delete the 5 selected items? Important: Once deleted items can not be recovered."

What explains the desire to delete without using Trash? Seems like a big nothing to me. In any event, the marketing language is inadequate to explain the nature and purpose of this app.

I assume it's to save a little time, instead of sending it to the trash, then emptying the trash yadda yadda. You just have to be pretty damn sure you want to delete the file.
